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.

Back in the early 1900's numerous eastern European settlers settled in the Edmonton and surrounding areas, a large number of them from Poland, Ukraine and Russia. This outside attraction takes you through their 150 year journey to settle in Alberta. Walking along country roads you will experience and see everyday life for these people. Period actors interact with visitors in... More

I have been to Edmonton and area many times and this is definitely still one of my favorite places to visit! We took a guided tour at first, which I would highly recommend. The tour gives you a chance to get comfortable with the actors that never break character! So amazing! They completely represent the era that they are (allegedly)... More

It was an exciting place to take the younger children for them to be able to relate to the life their great grandparents lived when they first came to Canada to settle. They loved the way they could pump water, ride on the wagons filled with stooks, drawn by horses . Thrashing machines, old school houses filled with old books... More
