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.

Museum was very interesting... People dressed in character, and were able to give some history. Really enjoyed the afternoon .

Black Creek Pioneer Village is a great place to stroll through on a beautiful sunny day...the old buildings give us a picture of the past. Have been here a few times over the years; however, this time, we were disappointed as there were on a few "pioneers" at in the various buildings "acting" and/or telling the public a bit of... More

Attended a one day summit at Black creek pioneer village and was pleasantly surprised at the facilities they have. Allot has changed since I visited it as a kid in school but it's still a great place for families to learn about a time when computers and other modern conveniences were not available. They lived in a time of true... More

The village has a number of animals, which makes it a great place for kids. The docents do a great job explaining the history, and adults can visit the taproom and taste the village's beer.

I haven't visited this place in over three decades, so there have been many changes to the original village. Nonetheless, these changes have improved, not detracted from the original intent of the place (i.e. to educate people about pioneer living). There is now a large interpretive centre at the entranceway and a small brewery onsite that allows customers (for a... More

I have been going to Black Creek Pioneer Village since I was a little girl on school trips and I have always loved the charm of the village. While at the village with family when I was younger I saw a wedding taking place and from that day on it was my "wedding dream" to get married there. In 2007... More

This is a place every family should visit at Christmas time. The houses and shops are open and demonstrating there wares (some even have samples). We had dinner (reservation required) before our walk. The church had a magnificent choir and carollers were roaming the streets. Mulled wine and roasted chestnuts completed our tour. Well worth the evening

This was the worst thanksgiving dinner ever. Processed Turkey roll on institutional mashed potatoes. Cost was $40 per person. Absolute rip-off. Balance of live displays well done by volunteers but not everything was operating. We remember this being much better in years gone by.
