This is a very interactive attraction that details the Acadian way of life, in Nova Scotia. Lots to see and do. Interact with the actors - spin some wool, go to a ceilidh, watch the blacksmith or listen to the old tales. Great day!

This is an extraordinary place to visit for someone who interested in the history of Acadian living during the last century. Hotel and restaurant are available on the spot and are very good. Visit the Acadian Village during the summer months, see how they made bread, utensils, brooms est the old way. You can spent a whole in visiting.

Don't miss this. The buildings and furnishings are great, but the interpreters are even better. So friendly and willing to talk and to demonstrate. We've visited a lot of historical villages but this one really stands out.

I recommend this experience for anyone interested in the history of Canada especially that of the early settlers. Each house and business has a presenter that tells the story associated with each and the passion and dedication was most apparent. I especially enjoyed the flour mill because it was worked and could mill flour. I also enjoyed visiting the cooperage... More

We got lost looking for this place adding a considerable amount of time onto our journey. To be honest when we arrived we were already sorry we'd ever decided to see the place. That quickly changed. We had booked the night at the hotel on the premises and it did not disappoint. We were too late for dinner but staff... More

Very interesting tour thru the Village. Could relate to a lot of the displays. It was a nice sunny day, but a cool breeze. Mid week so not overly busy .

It is many years since we last visited this historic village, and things have improved dramatically. There are now two "halves" separated by a covered bridge, each half covering a different century, from 1770 to 1949. The people "living" there play their parts impeccably, and are extremely friendly, and fluent in both French and English, and even though we visited... More

I definitely recommend staying in the Chateau Albert. Our room had all the 1900s style furniture. The hallway had an old fashioned phone. We rented a room which had a bathroom down the hallway. It contained a clawfooted tub and an old style water closet toilet. It also contained a kerosene lamp. The hotel also offers a breakfast which was... More
