It is a really hidden gem in the middle of the environmentally significant Fanshawe Park. We visit the sites 2-3 times a year, the cabins, the houses, the prinshop, the farm, the schools, the halls.. there si usually a special event on the weekends and for halloween they have special haunted hayride. I love the place, very well kept and... More

Visited this twice, the first time was a trip to examine all the buildings and exhibits. the second time was during a battle re-enactment. Had a wonderful talk from an 18th century surgeon on how to do an amputation. Looking for a victim to practice my skills. The buildings are rebuilt on the site as they would have been. Many... More

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!

This was my second visit to this village in ten years. Well presented and with guides dressed in costume who were both interested and interested in the things they wished to show visitors.

We visited this as part of the 2014 Doors Open. Each building had one or more docents who did a great job bringing the building to life. The grounds are well maintained. Unfortunately we could only stay for about 2 hours. You really need 4+ hours to really see everything properly.

We happened to be here during Doors Open London, which meant that we didn't pay for admission to Pioneer Village - our original plan was to do some hiking (paid admission for the conservation area). We thought we stop by for a visit since we had time; we were glad that we did. It was a nice day and there... More

Genuinely fun for all ages, and makes a great day trip. Village is very well maintained, interpreters are a delight to chat with, and the animals are adorable. Don't be shy to enter every building on your trip and ask questions. All of the historic building also have accessible ramps to their main floors. It's amazing to see this much... More
