  • It was a great experience, travelling back in time. The actors were amazing and they fired a real canon during the 'war'. I learned a lot more than school taught me about voyageurs, the natives, and the different medicinal techniques they used. They also bake bread that is for sale and it is amazing.
  • A wonderful tour through the historic purpose this geographic location played in Canada's early history. Great venue for families as well as those with 3-4 hours to spend learning and having fun.
  • This place is evolving into on fantastic place to bring family of all ages
  • The works act like it's back in the time. They are very good and have good stories and back ground stories to their characters.
  • Nice interior. But camps are awful. Leader had no experience with autistic kids
