November 2013 was the last time we came to this wonderful place that is really a jewel in our part of Southwestern Ontario. This time we treated my 97 year old mother to a drive out into the county on this early September and to take in the menu at the 1950's style diner located in the Transportation Museum part... More

We originally went out for lunch at the 50's Diner but ended up taking both tours- Village and Transportation Museum. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Due to previous theft in the area, we were unable to go by ourselves but touring with other people was alright. As all people who work there are volunteers, they were a little... More

The home cooked food is delicious. The car display in the museum is excellent. Thursdays are fun on hot rod night. You can even have an ice cold alcoholic beverage.

Well worth the trip. It is about 10 minute car ride from downtown Essex, Ontario. Great food at the diner for breakfast! Clean rental hall facilities! A great selection of heritage homes and log cabins to view of local history! Transportation museum provides viewing and tours of vintage automobiles and can learn a bit of history in the process!

We stopped there with our 7 year old and our 10 month old, but the museum has a lot to offer for all ages. The heritage section is a collection of cabins and household items that is set chronologically so that you can see the progression in all aspects of life. The staff was very patient and answered ALL of... More

This was a planned stop as part of a day trip to the area and had been chosen based on TripAdvisor reviews and it's location. The place is huge, and I had almost missed it because my GPS wanted me to turn in the opposite direction. It is right at the T of an intersection so you cannot really miss... More

We didn't realize the extent of this museum and only managed to see the transportation section. But that was an amazing collection of vehicles of all vintages and types. Beautifully restored and displayed, the museum and the knowledgeable curator gave us a first-class tour through the history of transportation, from early carriages to the Bricklin and the solar powered car....

This is a great place to visit, having a lot of historic buildings, and an old train and train station. The buildings come from the area, which were moved to Heritage Village one at a time. I've been here on Ghost Hunts, which were very fun and shown to be haunted. If you're a history buff, check this place out!
