I love this place! The authentic buildings and character actors make you feel like you took a step into the past. They really make it come alive. If you like history, this is the place to visit on a hot lazy summer day.

This was the first time I had the pleasure to visit the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village. Not only do the employees do an excellent job mas 'interpreters' playing their roles and staying in character; but they provide excellent information. The restoration they've done their on the various buildings is incredible. An excellent experience :)

This is a great place to visit in the spring or summer. All of the people working inside the park dress in period clothes and act as if they are in that time period. They all do a wonderful job. The place is well maintained and has lots of different buildings to explore. It's really interesting to find out how... More

I have visited this place with friends. it was like a trip back in time for us. Amazing scenery, old buildings and churches. Very kind people playing their roles. A place well worth to visit when traveling back roads through Alberta. It is a piece of a history.

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.
