Went here on a Saturday afternoon when it was a bit cool out. Started out with a Ukrainian plate at the red barn. It was pretty good and had 4 perogy's, a kuby, some cabbage rolls and a cucumber salad for $14. Shared the plate with someone but it's really best for one person. If it's really cool or windy...

We thought we'd spend several hours here, but ended up staying closer to 4 hours. The early Ukrainian Canadian pioneer experience is well portrayed at this museum. All the buildings at the Village were brought in from towns and farms nearby. We loved the character actors at each of the buildings. We appreciated the effort in answering our questions as... More

Easily accessible attraction less than one hour from Edmonton. Demonstrates the early immigrant experience of Ukrainians who arrived out west starting in the late 1800's through restored original structures. Lovely park setting with wagon rides, gift shop and ethnic food service in a garden setting. Our one annoyance is the park interpreters acting in the time period and thus making... More

Gorgeous day for the stroll. To bad that the concession closed earlier than 5 pm. Some people played characters well and were knowledgable. Kids (10 and 13 yr olds) had fun but we're looking forward to a drink at the concession....

This a great place to explore for an awesome cultural experience. We have been several time and learn something new each time. A good amount of walking, but worth the experience. Great to see all the period costumes and those acting out the roles of days gone by.

We had a fantastic time visiting the Ukrainian Village. The actors stayed "in character" the entire time, and we really enjoyed being picked up and given a ride through town in an old car. Very authentic experience and feel- and we also enjoyed the food at the food court after. It was also pretty authentic.

There is a lot of walking at this place, but that adds to the authentic feeling of really living "on the prairies" so it's worth it. You can go into a house made of dirt, a grain elevator, and old RCMP house, and even an old school house. The churches are also really interesting.

I really enjoyed this visit to the Ukrainian village. It's as if you have stepped back in time and are treated to a glimpse of life in the past. Baking and cooking, farming and the lives of the Ukrainian settlers is very well represented here. Lots of things to sample and a few to purchase to take home with you.... More

First, the good news. Many buildings and displays were excellent and well preserved. Some artifacts are very interesting. The "farm" character is charming. Now, the bad news. First, this seems to be an ethnic site that doesn't want other ethnics to visit it. I went with people who don't 'look' Ukrainian, including a Jew. The non-Ukrainians were greeted with suspicion...
