We visited this village last week while in Toronto, I have to say it was an interesting place to look around...there are lots of different types of buildings that you would have found in olden days, in each of the buildings were people dressed in the period dress and gave you speeches on the premises you were in, they really...

The visit was at the suggestion of my sister who lives just north of Toronto altho we are from the UK. During the month there was no charge for seniors which was an added bonus. The day was sunny and warm and I note some others found the event difficult in the wet. The characters were informative and the buildings... More

While it provides an activity to learn and may be good for families to spend a day, I didn't really feel it was worth the entrance fee or the permit especially for wedding photos: Granted, there are lots of spots to make the most of, but being limited to not entering the barns and structures is a bit stifling. Don't... More

We went with a small group. Some of the staff seemed to have a slight attitude but the others made up for it! Everything is well maintained the employees are knowledgeable. They sell freshly baked bread and cookies - put your order in early as they run out fast! They offer a wagon ride with time slots; I also suggest... More

Like another reviewer we visited in August when it was free admission for children but this was a bonus as we would have gone anyway. The setting is beautiful as it is a long established attraction and the buildings taken from other locations have blended in along with all the mature trees. The history of the original farm was particularly... More

I loved the way the village was set up with authentic buildings and employees walking around in period appropriate clothing. It was also very interesting to see the employees actually crafting items using the period appropriate type equipment. There was a summer camp going on while I was there which made it a little busy at points but we were... More

I was disappointed when I toured Black Creek Pioneer Village. I found many of the exhibits in the buildings were lacking in interest and organization. Much of what was on display was cluttered and didn't demonstrate the authenticity of the era. Many buildings had empty rooms, or you couldn't get to the second level of the houses, and there were...

This is a beautiful authentic 19th century village. Buildings have been moved from original locations, and are furnished in antiques of that era. There is a farm with pigs and other farm animals that is popular with children. It's a fun way of learning how our ancestors lived and the tools of their everyday lives.
