This place will bring you back to the 1800s. A lovely village atmosphere with houses where people dressed in clothes from that era explain how people in those days lived. We saw how cheese is made, how brooms are made, how they printed their village newspaper in the 1800s, a blacksmith.... very very interesting. There are even horse buggies that... More

Despite growing up in south central ON, I had never been to Upper Canada Village, but am so glad I did. Great job in portraying typical pioneer life with wonderful and knowledgeable staff, authentic buildings, tools and articles from the past. The cheese factory was my favourite although sad we couldn't "test" their products lol. The restaurant also served up... More

For those who don't know (I didn't), upper Canada refers to the fact that this location is "up" the St. Lawrence River. Lower Canada would be down the river, closer to the ocean. Aha! Anyway, we were only able to spend about 3 hours here, and it definitely wasn't enough. A charming stableman let us taste several varieties of heirloom... More

Had a great day with the kids visiting upper canada village. There is plenty to see and do. The blacksmith and lumber mills were my favourite. This is really an experience to go back in time. Do spend the time to talk to each person in their areas. The kids had a great day. Good full day activity near Ottawa.

We've been here with family and friends on a couple of occasions, once in winter when they decorate the buildings with what looks like millions of lights, on this evening near Christmas, we enjoyed a traditional dinner(which we reserved in advance) and tasted traditional dishes from the period. The second time was in the summer where we spent the day... More

Totally enjoyed the labour day weekend events - Horse Lover' - plus of course the entire venue which brings you back to the early 19th century Upper Canada. People who complain about today's hard work should spend a day observing how life was really demanding in that era.

We were there 3 1/2 hours but could have easily spent another hour or two. Both my boys (11 and a sometimes ornery 13) really enjoyed it. The people who staff the village do a great job of acting like they are in 1866, while still being able to relate it to kids. We spent a shocking amount of time... More

I remember coming here when I was a child. This visit was a treat from my parents for me and my family. It was well worth the price and we had a beautiful day to walk the grounds. I was surprised how intrigued our 13 and 15yr old daughters were. They asked a lot of questions and learned from each... More

We arrived around noon. The wait to buy tickets was at least 40 minutes. Buy tickets online especially on holiday week-ends. We had lunch at Willard;s Hotel. The freshest vegetable soup ever. Just made taste and so satisfying.Grilled cheese on fresh bread just like back in the day. Salad was fresh, light and perfectly seasoned. They were very busy but... More
