Family of 11 (2 grandparents, 1 family of 5, and 1 family of 4) with children under the age of 7 had a great experience. Very entertaining for children. Spent better part of the day there. We'll done.

Well, we went and it was fine. What made it wonderful were the interpreters. Buildings without the interpreters were just OK. It would have been nice to have audio one could listen to in the buildings/areas where there was no staff present. We happened to be here when the quilts were on display and they were stunning. It was also... More

This was a gem to find.. much larger and better than the website would suggest! It is like going back into time to see actual crafts being made, such as a tinsmith, a blacksmith, etc. We had a great visit!

We enjoyed our visit to Black Creek on a Sunday of a long weekend. Surprisingly not so busy. The interpreters were helpful and provided information for the various buildings. The Brewery tour was well worth it, with Blythe, our guide being very animated and made it quite lively. Gift shop and entry area is spacious. Lots of stuff to browse... More

With a couple of exceptions, I found the interpreters poor. The fellow in the original log house was interesting, Nancy in the frame house talked incessantly about herself, yet told us nothing about the house, except that a man who had lived in that house as a child gave them a photo of himself playing on the porch - but...

Greatly recommended for history lovers and families with children. I was looking for some local history on my visit to Toronto and came across Black Creek Pioneer Village where I spent a really nice day. There's quite a large variation of buildings in the village, from simple farmers cottages to 'posh' middle-class homes and also shops, churches and a school.... More

It was amazing to find this pioneer village almost in the middle of town. The exhibits were very well thought out and the staff very knowledgeable about the history of the buildings and the peoples they represented. The kids learned a lot and we saw that the Village also offered day camps and the campers seemed to be having lots... More

UK visitor. Thunderstorms during visit turned site into a quagmire which was unfortunate. Expensive entry and parking. Some places closed for various reasons. Guides not always sure of their facts and on occasions gave incorrect information. Very average on site food and drink provision. Overall very unimpressed.

Spent a fun few hours at the village with my 4 kids. The staff were great explaining everything to them even my 6 year hold who had lots of questions. Interesting to see how life was back then and what advances the industrial revolution brought. BBQ food was good. Bought some beer from their onsite brewery in the half way... More

I’ve heard a lot about Black Creek Pioneer Village but never have an opportunity to visit. It was Open Doors event May 24-25 and I grabbed the deal. The parking lot is huge but probably not enough for all people who want to see the Village. The ticket price is $15, $11 per kid (5-14), $14 for seniors and students... More
