It was ok. They have a broad range of houses, churches and gardens. Some of the building are still being reconstructed. They have actors which interact with you. Not a bad attraction.

A historical representation of the life of the Ukrainian immigrants in the province of Alberta. A great reference into the Ukrainian culture and life of the Ukrainian pioneers and farmers.

it as somewhat small, but rather large area to walk. You will get an understanding of western Canada's largest Ukrainian culture roots and way of past living. Best to attend when there are special events that increase attendance as well as entertainment

This is a remake of an original Alberta town with the Ukranian heritage. It is similar to Fort Edmonton or Heritage Park. They have a lot of characters in costume who either are very good actors or have Ukranian as their first language. The parking lot was full on the day we last went, and yet it is so big... More

This attraction is a hidden gem! It is only a 30 minutes drive east of Edmonton and well worth the trip! It is a great snapshot of an important part of our history.

We were able to take part in a group tour that got to see some of the "back room" stuff going on at the Village. Very neat place even with no Ukrainian heritage in the family. Very friendly staff and very informative about the buildings and displays. Food at the restaurant is very good and reasonably priced. Well worth the... More

I drive by on a regular basis but hadn't visited for many years. It is interesting and worth a couple of hours. It is very spread out, so if you have difficulty walking it may take longer to visit the various buildings. Unlike Fort Edmonton Park, it is not very busy -- but, it is also has substantially smaller. The... More

This was our first visit and it did not disappoint! At $20 for a family it is a very affordable family outing. I enjoyed the historical aspect & the costumed actors, kids enjoyed the animals and wagon ride. Don't forget to try some of the Ukrainian food!
