  • This would be of special interest to people of Eatsern Europe, especially Ukrainian decent. Wonderfull display of late 1890 settling in Alberta, and people cmoing through the early 1900's. School, chu...  more »

  • The buildings and interpreters are good. The food and drinks are completely overpriced. I was glad we brought our own waters, because they charge $3 per bottle of water. I recommend you bring a picnic...  more »

  • 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.
  • Being from Ukrainian decent, we learned a lot of my family's history and how we settled in th Pairies during that era. The actors did a great job portraying their roles and very insightful. My wife loves chickens, so she was thrilled when she was allowed to feed and hold them. Highly recommended!
  • Very nice atmosphere! Almost like went back in time. A lot of staff speak Ukrainian too, such a nostalgy!
  • 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.
