My wife and I were guests at a wedding reception that took place on the grounds of the Pioneer Village. The father of the bride had rented a ferris wheel, which was fully lit as the dusk set. The reception was situated inside the barn. It was rustic chic. We still say that was one of the best receptions we've... More

We went out to this park because they were doing a weekend event for the 1812 War. This added to the charm of the park with lots of educational talks in the various buildings and then of course the war. It was interesting just how smoky those old guns are so gives you a better respect for those old movies.... More

Fanshawe Pioneer Village is comprised of over 30 historic buildings that have been moved to this site and preserved. The village is pretty easy to do in a couple of hours and made a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. There is a cafe on the grounds that serves freshly made salads and sandwiches.

The past is brought to life here. There are many old buildings which give us a glimpse into what life was like in this area in pioneer times. Many volunteers on hand are dressed in period costume and put on displays illustrating activities of day to day life in those times. It's a great place to bring the whole family.

We spent a couple of hours roaming around the village on a Sunday morning. While not all of the buildings have costumed interpreters, those that were there were very interesting. They seemed to be very knowledgeable, and as it wasn't busy, they were able to spend time answering any questions we had.

We visit London Ontario every year and have been here several times. Always enjoy seeing the historic houses they have on site. Staff available (sometimes in costume) to talk about the buildings etc and give demonstrations. Can recommend for couples, families or even just to wander around on your own.

This is not a huge museum but is very well put together with friendly and welcoming staff. All of the staff we met were very knowledgeable and happy to chat and share their extensive and in depth stories about the exhibits and their background, but were not pushy at all. The grounds are well maintained and very pleasant to stroll... More

Lots of fun for families interested in pioneer life. Teacher in the school house was great! We enjoyed listening to the knowledgable staff located in different sections of the park.
