We went for the 125th anniversary of Ukrainian Settlers. The vendors were amazing. .live demonstrations of weaving, pysankas (Ukrainian Easter eggs), and so much more! There were Ukrainian singers and dancers! A priest gave a blessing for Chornobyl... many folks were dressed up in traditional clothing. This can easily be an all day affair... dress for the weather with good... More

We enjoyed the people who worked at the museum. They all acted in character and were very knowledgeable. There is a market in the square but it wasn't running when we were there. Next time I would check to see when that was running. There are a few buildings under renovation. A great reason to come back next year!!!

Had a good adventure visiting the cultural village. A step in time to view the heritage of early settlers in the province of Alberta. Lots of interesting buildings and the tools they used to live in early years coming to Canada. A nice walk and also a wagon that you can catch a ride on. Make sure you take a... More

Went and had lunch at the red barn. A large open building with lots of seats. The kitche was on one side of the room as you entered. We ordered some Ukrainian food which was quite good but not the best I've eaten. One could also sit outside and et at one of the picnic tables on a nice day.

My parents first took me to the Ukrainian Village when I was teen, I took my wife here when we got married and now I take my kids every couple of years. It's a fantastic experience to step back in time and see how living on the prairies once was. This is not just your average assembly of old builds... More

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
