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!

The village itself is very interesting...lots to look at, staff are good with questions, easy walking...thought it was very impressive until we got back to the parking lot and found the car window smashed....apparently this happens a lot there...Robo cop was already there dealing with other visitors...he made us fill in a form...told us there was nothing he could do...

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 recently attended the Mothers Day Lunch Buffet put on by the Fanshawe Pioneer Village. What a great value! 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.

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!

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
