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.

I was really looking forward to visiting the Pioneer Village but was so disappointed. While the trail around the village is pretty to walk along, only the blacksmith was 'working' and only one house open to walk around. The shop was good, shame about the place. They could have done so much more with opening all the houses and workshops... More

Spent a lovely fall afternoon wandering through the well-kept buildings and displays. Low-key, with good interpretation by well-trained staff. This place has been around for a long, long time and offers a rural oasis in the middle of the now-enormous GTA.

We were hoping for a better time. It was a beautiful day, so it was nice to walk around the village with all the fall colours. We wished there were more interpreters in the buildings, would have made the trip better. And some of the interpreters didn't say anything to us at all, making it uncomfortable to be watching them.... More

My kids and I simply love visiting the village, you are taken to a different world, just as if you had gone into a time machine, so much to learn and to see. It is a nice break from our crazy lives, an easy way to learn about the past, a fantastic day out !!

A true experience that takes you back hundreds of years - complete with muddy streets and boardwalks. From maidens baking cookies in a hearth oven to seeing a real blacksmith and pig farmer back in the 'good old days' really makes you appreciate what we as a society has these days. A MUST see!

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
