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.

We went on a Tuesday afternoon. It was not too busy which made it nice in that we didn't have to share the buildings too much. I had a huge double stroller with me so would've made it harder to get into the buildings if it was busier since they're not too big. That being said, it was very easy... More

We visited primarily for the Quilt Exhibit and Sale, held over a weekend in July. Expecting a few quilts here and there, we were pleasantly surprised to see dozens of quilts, beautifully created and executed, showing modern and traditional designs. Most were not just "quilts" but major works of art. The modern ones were amazing - showcasing scenery, abstract themes,... More

Visited here recently couldn't get over how quiet it was it was great. We had plenty of time to wander around and soak up the history of the place and take loads of photos and talk to the people working on the site. Fascinating.

Black Creek Pioneer Village is a great place to spend a day! They have one of the best historical villages that I have come across, with many diverse buildings and stories about the people who have come before us. The village is quite a fair size so be prepared to walk a lot. It took us around 4 hours to... More

Since our granddaughter studied a “pioneer theme” in her class in June, we thought a visit to the Black Creek Pioneer Village would be appropriate. We were hopeful it would be interesting for her. We started our visit at 11 a.m.; stayed for lunch on site and by 3 p.m. the day was heating up, so we decided to leave.... More

As an avid historical nerd, I enjoyed the village walk. There are lots of hidden treasures that can be found throughout the village. Would have like to have been able to actually see the blacksmith work area, the actual workings of the mill and the Doctors house. I will have to search online to see if these places open up...

There are a few docents who speak about how things were done in the past, the brewmaster was very informative. The rest seemed bored and any information had to almost be cajoled out of them. There was very little going on so after paying $15 each and $7 for parking, it was a rip off considering what was there

I was not expecting to enjoy my day at Pioneer Village- but I really did. The staff are knowledgable and accessible. The village is small enough if you want to see it quickly, but also a perfect size so that you can easily go back to places when other events are happening. The Mill was truly amazing and the Blacksmith... More
