A great spot to walk around. Learned to do a Victorian Dance, Brewery Tour highly recommended. Even with kids. Our tour guide was very friendly and she was very knowledgeable. She kept everyone engaged even while walking to the Mill. I stopped in to see Santa. If you have seen Miracle on 34th Street you got to come here. I... More

I had not been to Pioneer Village since I was a kid. Needless to say, ahem, a few years ago. I was thrilled to see the lovely welcome reception area, enjoy some vintage foods and interact with really knowledgable interpreters. Get there soon! They close for the season just before Xmas. Reopen in the spring. A super great outing for... More

Black Creek Pioneer Village attracts both the young and old. Buses full of students or adults strolling among the aged buildings. Many events occur within its boarders. I once attended a wedding in its chapel. The mill is certainly something to behold and its restaurants offer hearty fare.

A great place to visit with children. A good number of restored buildings, excellent interpreters, animals that kids can interact with.............plus a real brewery for dad! Avoid school holidays or morning during the week as there are quite a few school groups..........would suggest calling ahead to verify. Entrance fee is expensive plus parking but on par with most attractions.

The Pioneer Village is a fun place; there's quite a few buildings to go through, lots of farm animals to see, and the interpreters are very good at presenting the historical information in an interesting way. It's a good place for kids, or for hobby photographers. There's a little restaurant with pretty good food, and they brew their own beer... More

We enjoy going at least once a year. They often have special events and the kids enjoy walking through the village and enjoy seeing the homes with the antique items and old clothing.

We had a great time here during the Halloween period. Our daughter loved the creepy crawly talk. The trick or treat and decorate your own pumpkin was fab too. Amazing value and great to learn some Canadian history!! A must see!!

A history buffs dream come true. With 5 original buildings on site and others being relocated to this area there is a lot of early Canadian history packed into a small area. When you first walk into the village you are greeted by the original barn on this site that was built in 1825 - amazing. Make sure to take... More
