Took the family and friends here and a really good time. Lots to see and do. The people there are a lot of fun and really enjoy what they're doing. Learned a lot and we'll be back.

A nice place to spend a day. lovely to take a walk through the village, see the old age things. The houses are from 1800s ...so it's a different place to experience.

This place is well worth going to when visiting Toronto. If you live in Toronto and have visitors, take them to pioneer village. You can easily spend hours wandering through this beautiful setting right in the heart of Toronto. Learn how the pioneers lived by stepping into the past. There are dozens of buildings to go through and each place... More

In late Aug, our family went to visit Black Creek Pioneer Village in Toronto. It transports you out of the city into a time of long ago. The area is full of mature trees so you don't notice that you are in the city. The buildings are from the 1800's of a variety of styles. Log homes, wooden board houses....... More

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
