Have gone with groups and as a couple, is always a great experience. The animals were a hit. The forge was our favourite and the lobstering stories were great. Honestly, I... More

We were advised by our B & B hosts to pay a visit to the Acadian Historic Village. It was a most interesting place to visit, the buildings that have been relocated here were oiutstanding. The village actors were excellent and significantly helped in explaining their way of life - in correct character for the period that they represented. If... More

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...
