Mike is an amazing story teller and OH SO wonderful with kids. He's super patient and definitely gets them involved in the story. My son... More

I really enjoyed wandering around, looking at the handcrafts and being able to speak with the artisans about their love for their culture and willingness to share it, so we might understand. Thanks!

We went to see the weaving workshop and had a fairly long talk with Attijup (Christine). She is a very knowledgeable and very interesting person. She taught us a lot about her tribe and other Native tribes. Great visit. I can't say much about the rest of the place as we went through it very quickly.

The train takes you into the forest and "in" to the story. A tale that is told with words, visuals, and live actors that greet you along the trail. Lovely!

There was a number of little first nations craftn stalls, with very friendly and helpful staff, some of which were making things as we were browsing. There was also the Miniature Rail trip, with a...

Arrived just before closing so only got to so the minature railway which is just $5 and our kids were free. They enjoyed the ride (about 10 min). It was efficient & clean. Can't really comment on the rest of the village though as it was closing! (4pm weekday close)

The sign posting for the village in the park could be a little clearer as I spent quite some time looking around for it, even after asking people for directions. When I finally found it I enjoyed watching the drumming from a first nations gentleman who was getting members of the audience involved which was brilliant. I then looked around... More

We took our kids there because of the train ride, and we had a lot of fun. The train ride included a story along with actors and props, and the kids and I loved it! There was a show that was both informative and fun with music and costuming. They had refreshments including bannock, one of son's favorite food. My... More
