“A JEWEL of an activity”
Reviewed September 29, 2011

The Village Quebecois d'Antan was a "time capsule" of a long-ago period in Quebec history where you can visit restored and original buildings, speak with costumed townspeople who play their roles VERY well (general store owner, printer, blacksmith, priest etc.). We enjoyed asking questions and engaging these townspeople in conversation. Children were present -- part of the "live in the village" summer program for kids who want a different experience than summer camp.
We stayed all day, but it depends on if you like to zip through a site or savour it. Bring comfortable walking shoes, your camera and your curiosity.
BEST: That all the villagers constantly maintained their roles and characters.
LIKED LEAST: the bakery and the pastry shops sell out their goods and we came home empty handed because we waited until near the end of the afternoon :(

REALLY worth our time and entry fee.
