It is many years since I went to the Black Creek Pioneer Village (July 2003), but what fun I had here. Staff are dressed in period costume and many are using the utensils of the era to cook, clean and harvest the fields. Many of the buildings are set out as they would have been in the era they represent.... More

Not worth the trip. Nothing there. Not very interactive. It's not so bad if you have young kids because they have some activities for them to do.

My cousin who lives overseas expressed her wishes to visit Black Creek Pioneer Village. Although I have been here many times before I decided to take her. Let let has changed in the village. However there are a few additions to the village that allows for events to take place. We went on a Sunday and there was not much... More

We spent 4 hours strolling through an 1800's setting in this lovely pioneer village. All staff are dressed in period costume and extremely friendly and knowledgable. Getting dressed in costume was fun. The brewery is a must and the beer tasting was great. I'd like to have seen a bakery that offered home made baked goods for sale. There wasn't... More

Very well laid out and interesting. The wagon drive was cancelled due to the hit weather which was a shame. Nice snack bat serving good hamburgers. Would recommend for old and young.

We had visited on our previous trip to Toronto 9 years ago and we were keen to go back particularly for the benefit of our 12 year old daughter who was a huge "Little House on the Priarie" fan. The pionerrr village was pretty much how we remembered it. It was very well done and the guides in each of... More

I've been there in all seasons and there is always something fun to do. Really loved making toffee/caramel in the snow. One of my fav places to go!

The minute you walk through the time vortex you are taken back to the good old pioneer times. From the Blacksmith to the general store where they make fresh molasses cookies, you will find something of interest. Each villager will great you warmly and tell you all about how it was back then. A wonderful place to spend an afternoon.... More

At Black Creek Pioneer Village they make learning about the past, a blast. Hands on, interactive with great info shared by "villagers" who are completely in character. Make sure if you go with children to ask is they are offering the Passport to the Past - where kids can go behind the scenes and learn about weaving, printmaking, leather making,... More
