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

We spent a couple of hours visiting and exploring! Some buildings and areas were closed which is disappointing because you want to explore everything seeing your paying the same price. So much fun how the workers are dressed and play as if they were living in these areas many years ago. Best thing happened was a new lady was working... More

I went to Ukrainian Village with some friends and one of them is in a wheelchair. Didn't get in some of the attraction because they didn't have ramp. But they have a washroom that is accessible for wheelchair.

We took our elderly parents for a visit and it was great. They had electric scooters for seniors and/or people with mobility issues which were wonderful. Our parents were able to enjoy the whole village and feel comfortable with their mobility. Staff in the village are in costume and acting the part. It was a really nice way to learn... More

We visited on a day that had a special vintage cars event running, so that really pepped the place up, with dancers, music, stalls etc. But strip that out and it feel more like an education centre. They do have some excellent staff, happy to engage and share stories, plus there is a "mini museum" giving some historical context which... More

not really worth a special trip. if you happen to be driving by or going to elk island then it is maybe worth a stop but definitely not a special trip.

I am a big fan of historical interpretative sites like this, so I very much enjoyed my time here. The site is quite large and the buildings are spread out, so be prepared to do a fair amount of walking. Good shoes, a hat, bug spray and sunscreen are essential. My opinion is that the spread-outedness of the buildings tends... More

We're been to the Ukrainian Cultural Village several times over the last 10-15 years, and the staff stay in costume & in the period ( circa 1910 ). My Mom was especially fond of the old homes & kitchens and really liked the Old Hardware Store.
