  • Great slice of history from the past. The only thing keeping it from a full 5 star rating is the lack of interpreters at the various different buildings. Would be great to have someone explaining the story behind them.
  • Great history, awesome tour guides. Food is great although a bit overpriced. You can really feel the history and nature of the Mennonite culture.
  • Extensive museum and recreated village. I have thoroughly enjoyed my visits here and hope to return soon. A valuable resource for those of Prussian/Russian Mennonite background or for those interested to know more about them.
  • The village is a showcase of life in Manitoba when it was settled by Eastern European Mennonites in the 1800s. I learned a great deal about Mennonite culture, history, and way of life. The buildings within the village are interesting for their purpose and historic significance. The volunteers that work in the village are quite generous with stories and information. My friends and I stayed for 3 hours, proceeding at a leisurely pace. There is an overpriced restaurant inside the village that serves the most uninspired food. I suggest staying away and just bringing your own food or eating before visiting.
  • This is a EVERY interesting place, but more so if you're from a Mennonite or Russian background. It's supposed to signify a typical Mennonite village in Russia. I've been there several times & I never tire of it. It's an EXCELLENT family outing so parents can explain the various buildings, the customs etc.
