I have been to the Village Acadien many times. I always enjoy the visit when I went with my grandparents and parents as they were telling stories of how they grew up and showing how much we have evolved in such a short time! AMAZING!

In order to understand the true historical events and how the acadian people gas been through after their déportation and how they lived in the past, 19th and beginning 20th century, the Acadian village is the best place to visit. People there are very friendly and easily accessible for explanations. Bilingual. You can see them in action in farming, milling,... More

We really enjoyed our day at the Village. The site is beautifull, with farm animals, authentic Acadien houses and passionate, knowledgeable interpreters. Plan a whole day and eat onsite. Ask questions for a richer more realistic experience. A really well run attraction! We also stayed at the beautifull onsite hotel the Chateau Albert, which greatly added to the experience.

We stopped for a short while here and it was awesome - the views were to die for and it made us book another, different tour that spent far longer in the park. The colours and the fresh air were beautiful - we had plenty of time to walk around where we stopped but wished it was longer

People dress and live like in the 1700. Being curious of course we always want to find out more about our pionneers with the way... More

My father, two grade schools sons and I spent a great day here in August 2014. They really put the "living" in living history museum. This one was so much more vibrant than similar places (ie Greenfield Village) in the US, maybe because the animals that were part of people's lives were there living with the people. So in the...

We were here in mid September when only guided tours were offered at 10 a.m. for $10. We loved the tour idea, but were not told that it would be a combined group of French & English speaking guests. Be prepared to stand around and listen to the other language being spoken for 5 minutes at a time while you... More

Great experience learning about a part of history we were totally unaware of. The interpreters do a great job of bringing you into the historical feel. We had no problem communicating since all interpreters speak both French and English, and in fact, they immediately know by how you pronounce "bon jour" what language they should address you in.
