Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes, this place is so large and takes a few hours if you want to take everything in. Each site has someone to explain what, who and when and these people actually act the part and era. It's very cool. If it's a hot day take along a bottle of water, as I said,... More

If you appreciate what our ancestors went through when they first came to Canada in the early 1930's - 1940's, then you should visit the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village. There you will view straw thatched roofs on houses, the humble beginnings of pioneers ploughing their fields with horse and plough, the first bank, school, church, blacksmith shop, the first combine...

If you have been here before (as I have every few years) it is worth coming again. There are new building being restored here all the time. If this is a first time event, it truly is an experience. Admission is very "family affordable": There are wheelchairs and scooters available for physically impaired for free. ( A small donation is... More

This place was great! The first person interpreters were very well done and for several moments you could actually see what it might be like to live with them in the time period. Absolutely worth the drive from Edmonton to visit and learn some things about another culture.

Well worth a visit. Costumed staff are very friendly. Good value for money. There are some new additions at the site but are not open to the public yet. Food is available at the site but nothing more than fast food.

We loved our visit, taking about three hours including a lunch on our way out. There are numerous farm buildings and town buildings covering the pre-1930 time period. These include three churches, two schools, grain elevator, train station, hotel, blacksmith, several stores, barns, and numerous others. There are village employees (or volunteers?) in several buildings adding much realism with their... More

Wonderful visit, village was well laid out. Worth going with the tour as they tell you a lot about what was, and they open buildings that might be locked up. Very authentic staff that take you back in time. Plan for a few hours, pack a picnic with you and add some of the delicious food offerred for sale. Cute... More

My wife and I had a chance to drop into the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village for an after recently. We started with traditional Ukrainian food, (a must!) and then headed around the exhibit that holds about 30 buildings moved from various communities in central Alberta that date back to the 1930s. My wife and I were most impressed with the... More
