I make the trip out to the Ukrainian village every summer. It never gets old. I love the historic buildings and period actors. Great place to bring the family to as children will learn lots of new things and enjoy the overall experience of having actors around. Lovely place to visit and worth the drive.

This is a great way to spend the day with the family. About 40 min East of Edmonton and a good education tool for the kids as they see how the early Ukrainian emigrates learned to survive in a new land, from a Soddy house to a working grain elevator. There is food available and the entry fee is reasonable,... More

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.

You do not have to be Ukrainian to enjoy and take in this attraction. You get a strong feeling of how it would be living in the early years of Western Canada, as it was being developed. An added bonus to the village is attending when there is a event. You get to see, hear, smell and taste the Ukrainian... More

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 :)
