This was a usual field trip for kids back in the 70s but it has really improved since then. Friendly staff explaining everything, great exhibits, a lovely little restaurant and general store. Will be back for sure.

I went here for Doors Open and it is great for a walk around. It's also a good place for kids because they can run around and learn a little while they are there!

I went to the Fanshawe Pioneer Village last week for their World War I day and it was an amazing and fun filled day. I learned a lot and they showed us what it was REALLY like in WWI and would definitely recommend going.

Have been to the village many times over the years and have always found something new. Love the school rooms. Enjoyed a light meal at the restaurant. Old fashioned store always a hit.

This is a great place for a family. There is so much to look at and explore. It is a nice place to wander. We had lunch at the restaurant at the end of the tour, and bought some fresh honey there too!
