  • A great learning experience; you could easily spend a whole day here. The only negative thing I have to say is when we went on the wagon ride, they dropped us off a long ways away from the entrance and told us they'd be back around in half an hour to an hour. That frame of time passed and they did not return. It was a very hot day, 30 degrees at least. We realized that we'd have to walk back. Not a big deal for my mother and I - we're both in good shape - but there were several elderly and one disabled patron that had come in on the wagon with us. I did mention this back at the office, so hopefully it's no longer an issue. But otherwise, the park was great! I'll come visit again next time I'm in the area!
  • Fantastic, the site is well kept and the staff all did great to educate and have fun while staying character. The most fun we had was in playing along within the timeline. There are lots of buildings that were awaiting construction but there is more than enough on site to represent life. Check it out and be sure to drop in at the restaurant or pack a lunch for a great break in the park.
  • Great place to spend a day learning about part of our Canadian heritage. Exhibits are really well done and the tour guides are all dressed in authentic costumes and talk and act as if you are right there in that time period. Nice touch. Very immersive experience. The food is great although small portions. Don't feel ripped off though it's prepared by volunteers who are doing it to support the village and it's good to support them in my opinion. You can also bring your own lunch and eat it on the grounds if you want.
  • Total waste of money. Paid full family entrance fee, with most houses etc. being closed. Places were nothing but over grown weeds and no interacting from the so called workers. There is no effort to make it traditional, other than buildings. there is a restaurant in the hotel, why not at least have coffe and pie to make some sort of effort to make some funds, rather than a disappointing walk about. So much more can be done with very little effort. But effort means a bit of work, which seems to be there lack of. As for animals, isa brown chickens aren't a traditional heritage breed, but a mixed breed. Some pigs and a couple of horses. It needs more effort into getting with the program. Staff need to get off their butts and do as they are paid for...act the era, and not stand as a door stop. The consesion is a total rip off waste of time. Very poor! I just think the village can have a bit of things happening everyday. I do know they have their special event days. But then don't charge the full fees if that is the case, as it is disappointing. I saw many people arrive and leave in no time at all. I heard a lot of negative comments. I know very few ever post a review, so the first star rating is not even accurate. It is a beautiful place though, it just needs more for the money. Thank you
  • What a beautiful place to visit! The guided walk was fun and informative. But the real stars here are the buildings and scenery. Breathtaking views of the lake and countryside are all part of this fantastic working village and farm. Highly recommended!
