  • The 50 Kilometer trip East from Edmonton is worth it. The Ukrainian Village replicates the living conditions of the early settlers in Alberta.  more »
  • Be prepared to walk a lot! This heritage village offers a glimpse into the life of Canadians in the early 1900's. The individuals hired to enact the life of farmers, shop keepers, RCMP, train operator...  more »
  • I was looking forward to visiting the Ukrainian Village but was very disappointed. Visited on Sunday of the long weekend. - At least half the buildings are locked up or "under development" so could on...  more »

  • This living museum is lovely. The quality of the acting is just marvelous. Most of the buildings are not wheelchair accessible, so plan on doing a lot of just walking around if you can't lift your wheelchair user. Arrive early if you want to take advantage of the free horse and cart ride as it seems to fill up quickly, but the roads are wide and walkable. There is no food or drink in the museum proper but there is a great shade-filled picnic area and a small food service area before you cross into the historic village. We brought our own picnic so I didn't see the prices but the food itself looked like it was great quality and healthy (meal sized salad with beets and cheese). If you plan on going more than once get a membership to the "friends society"- $50 for a family- and you can go back any time. It costs $40 for one family admission so it's a great value. This was a really fantastic way to spend the day.
  • Loved our visit here! Churches, homes, businesses etc. We're moved here from other Alberta locales. Authentic! Lovely grounds with a nice food area which is shaded by trees. Lots to see. The only thing missing is an actual sit down restaurant to eat at. Would like that. Great, enjoyable day. Highly recommended!!
  • The actors portraying Ukrainian settlers going about daily life were very authentic. Even the wife of the RCMP officer was authentically British and knew done give and Sullivan off by heart. It was a beautiful day for a family picnic that included a ride in a horse drawn wagon.
  • Pretty disappointing. We went with a school group and the guided tour was poorly organized and when it was time to go on our own more than half of the buildings were closed. I will most likely not return.
  • Great place to visit! It is fun to interact with the interpreters who stay in character based on the year associated with the area they are in.
