We were excited to tour Fanshawe Pioneer Village, and the village itself did not disappoint us. However, there were several issues that affected our rating. First, we arrived about 1.5 hours before closing, but most of the demonstrators were gone. As a result, we paid a significant fee to walk around and look at empty buildings. Second, the fee was...

Small village, but we had a lovely time. When we visited, there were people dressed up in 19th century garb, fun activities for the kids - stilts and beanbag games. And there is a maze

They have quite an few sites on the property. The date range for the village is 1820 to 1920. You get a bit of everything in the 100 years. More characters would make the visit more education for kids. They only had about 7.

Great place to bring kids! Lots to see and do. Hands on things for kids to do from the time and era. Each season or holiday is a special event. All year round good fun!

We are so sorry to hear about your incident in the parking lot over the Victoria Day weekend. The security staff of Fanshawe Conservation Area work very hard to provide security for this 3,000 acre park. However, an incident may happen while they are involved in an occurrence in another area of the park. Wherever vehicles are parked, break-ins do... More

We made advance reservations online and then showed up the day of to a very well planned and executed event. It was a small venue with maybe 50 people in it. Even though we were physically close to our neighbours it... More

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.
