We live in Nova Scotia but had never been to this historic village. We are so pleased we stopped on our little road trip around the province! The people were so helpful, very friendly and informative. They have done a very nice job in recreating this historic village and take pride in it's presentation. Even with the restrictions that the pandemic created they went out of their way to make sure you learned a lot and had fun doing it. Thank you for a memorable and educational stop!

My fiance and I visited this spot for the first time a couple of weeks ago on my first visit to Yarmouth County. The area is stunning and so well maintained. Due to covid restrictions we had our own personal tour guide to take us through the village. We learned so much about the people and even got to watch a demonstration from the black smith. We didn't feel rushed and everyone was so friendly. We highly recommend visiting Le Village Historique, it is suitable for all ages. There is also a walking trail in the area and a light house. Beautiful views as well.

This was an excellent excursion! The guided tour was exceptional, and very informative. The people working on site were professional, yet very friendly and accomodating. They are very passionate about their village and anxious to sure with others. I would highly recommend this for anyone - school groups included!

We did this as part of our staycation and we’re glad we did. This is typically a self guided tour but given Covid-19 restrictions was guided. It was a really neat look at Acadian life in the early 1900s. They brought you through homes, a blacksmith shop, fishing shanty and other buildings common to an Acadian village of that time. Each building had people dressed in period costume explaining a day in the life of an Acadian during that time. It was very informative. When we first arrived we didn’t realize it was an interpretive museum and were pleasantly surprised as it gave us many different perspectives from many different people with different areas of expertise (blacksmith, homemakers, boat builders, fishers) all of whom know the craft of that time. Give yourself a couple of hours and you will be glad you did. I wish the time period was from an earlier time but it was so interesting and quite frankly really cheap (5 bucks an adult) so it is an interesting and fun thing to do in the area.
