We were taking the scenic route on our way to Dalhousie, NB. Unfortunately we arrived here at the end of the day but were entranced by what we found in the short time we had. The staff was outgoing and informative. We have recommended this place to our friends and hope to come here again to spend a more leisurely... More

Good place to visit to learn about Acadian history and culture. The houses are very interesting and contain many historical artifacts. The village is quite large and will require at least a few hours in order to see the majority of it.

The Acadian Historical Village is a must see, whether you're French, English speaking, you will love the experience. I am an Acadian myself, and have been brought up about 45 minutes from the location of the Village, have visited it countless times in my life, and still love to go for a visit almost every year, I learn and see...

We have been to many historical villages, but this is the best. Every building has a re-enactor who will explain about the building and/or the tasks they are performing. In many other places we have visited the staff are pretending to perform relevant tasks, but here the work is real. The women in the homes are preparing meals for other... More

A historical time capsule. Well run and historically correct. A four hour walk through history. We visited old homes and business with horse drawn wagons and steam engines. Bake ovens, black smiths , vegetable gardens and farm animals. Tres cool!

I was pleasantly surprised by the Village. I could have spent much more time here, listening to the historical interpreters in each house. What a wealth of history! The settling was beautiful, lunch of traditional Acadian food was fantastic (pea soup highly recommended). I am considering a stay in Chateau Albert at the village in the future.

WHAT AN AMAZING ADVENTURE! This place has it all, music, entertainment, education, and food!! This would make an adventure that you will not forget. My suggestion is walk through the village but hitch a ride back to the entrance, especially if you have children. As long as you don't have allergies to horse, you will be fine. By the time... More

I loved the lay out of the village. You start at the oldest building and as you work your way through, you are going through time. Everyone was friendly and it great how you could go into almost every building. It obviously it a French speaking place but as soon as people realized I didn't speak it, they switched to... More
