We went to Greenfield Village at the Henry Ford complex last week in Detroit so seeing the Pioneer Village the very next week made for a difficult bar to reach but it was interesting and we had fun.

This is a nice little pioneer village with old buildings that is probably not worth going out of your way to visit. But I went during a War of 1812 re-enactment, held for one weekend every September. Then the village really comes to life. This is an ideal time to visit. btw, the entrance is NOT on Fanshawe Park road... More

Took my 10 year old nephew to the village on a day that turned out to be a special dog days event. We were able to get his dog's name burned into wood at the blacksmith's shop which he loved. It's been awhile since I have been to the village, but I loved that they had a café and I... More

Amazing, Engaging, Fun. Two members of our family recently went to the Village, Age 23 and age 10, both remarked that they had a great day, and that the experience was far more wonderful they they had anticipated.

A beautiful setting for a pioneer village, lots to see and do with interpretors, re-enactments and much more. Very quiet and peaceful in the park but loads of events going on.

If you like to learn the history of the places you visit, this is a great place to visit with wonderful exhibits of real and reconstructed artifacts and great actors to tell you the history.

I always like visiting this place. It always offer something news yet always leaves me with a good feeling of constancy as well. Even though I had season's passes and also visited with tickets or Doors Open events when I had no seasons passes I always see something new in the houses I visited many times. Or I just sit...

it was like stepping back in time...a step away from the hustle and bustle of today's society...a great place for the whole family of all ages...back to nature where people can get back in touch with themselves and others...full of activity...learn how life was like and done in the simplest times...
