I've been visiting Black Creek Pioneer Village for more than 30 years and I still love it as much as I did when I was a kid. On a recent trip back to Toronto with my kids, we decided to stop in and have a look and we weren't disappointed. There is a lot to see and do for kids.... More

I took my grandchildren here on Monday and they thoroughly enjoyed the history. The youngest one, who is 7, said he liked "city hall" the best. Good opportunity for them to see how life was in the 1800's. Although they did ask if that was the type of bicycle I rode when I was a kid!!! Not quite. They loved... More

It is what it is. An area with 1800 Century buildings and people dressed in timely attire. Every now and again our family likes to go back and our expectations on entertainment are low. On this particular day they had dress up activities and candle making. Most of the employees and volunteers were friendly and knowledgeable. Prices in the gift... More

I was impressed with how organized the village. In the village can not only old houses, city council, church and school, but also HOTEL, a smithy, a printing house, weaving workshop and more. Actors tell and show how the old machines work. Ladies in hotel are baking bread and biscuits. The actors also play with children in the old games... More

We attended the Christmas By Lamplight program, and again it was awesome! The village is awash in lamplight, and you feel like you've travelled back to the 1860's. The staff and volunteers are engaging and interesting, and the special activities were great. The village is a real treat, nestled inside the hustle and bustle of Toronto, you don't hear a... More

What a day we had. Difficult to say what was best but the whole day was just so enjoyable. Some of the shops were inhabited by so very interesting people in period costume and had rather absorbing stories to tell. Especially liked the Print shop manager and the Tinsmith, both both extremely informative, and entertaining. Great stuff. The dressmaker was... More

I was not expecting much but for my surprise it was awesome. The actors are great and the activities were so enjoyable. There is nothing bad I could say about this. Be sure to arrive at opening because if you don't there will not be much time to visit all and participate in the activities. Great for families!

Beautiful, historical site:) The farm animals are amazing. Mr. Turkey is overprotective of Ms. Turkey:) screaming at visitors coming too close to his lady bird:) Employees are wearing historical costumes and they have a great knowlage of history. Wonderful nature surroundings in the heart of the city.
