I have been to Lang about 20 times and loved it each and every time. And it amazes me how I learn something new each time I go! It's a great escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Their special events are fun too. I recommend going at different times of the year - summer, Halloween, autumn, and... More

Going and visiting Lang was like stepping back in time its a smaller version of upper Canada village with enactments of the civil war lots of houses to go through and activity for children and horse drawn wagon rides one of my favorites is the doctors office with all the primitive tools and they explain how things were done then...

I spent a wonderful afternoon here the first week of August. The staff in the buildings were full of not only facts but some interesting stories as well. It was wonderful to see history kept alive and being appreciated by all generations. I purchased some wonderful wool mittens that reminded me of ones my grandmother used to make me when... More

If you want to really understand what our forefathers had to endure to survive, Lang Pioneer Village will give you a better idea. We thought we had it bad when we were growing up and post on Facebook about how hard it was. Go to a living museum and learn that we had it really great as children. All that... More

We had intended to listen to an Eagles tribute band in Peterborough on a Saturday night. The weather however was not nice at all (miserable rain). On the Sunday decided to visit nearby Lang Pioneer Village. We were certainly pleased with what they had on display. Most of the village homes are from the 1800's along with farm implements, a...

I liked visiting Lang Pioneer Village. I liked walking along the pathway to the various houses and buildings. I find it isn't expensive and it's a good set-up. They have different events throughout the year and I like going in the Fall to the Applefest or Halloween happenings. It's difficult to go in the buildings if you have a stroller... More

If historical sites are your interest and you're in the Peterborough area, go to see Lang Pioneer Village near Keene, Ontario. Costumed guides tell about the life during the 1800s in Ontario. My husband and I enjoyed the time there, and it would be a good place for families to visit as well. From the early settler's cabin to the... More

We took our grandchildren aged 6 and 8 to Lang Pioneer Village during the summer of 2014. The grounds are kept really nice and the buildings and artifacts are beautiful. Interpreters are available in most buildings and share their knowledge with the visitors. The weaver let the kids help weave a rug on the loom and the printer got the... More
