Our family visited the Village on its opening day. Cheerful box office staff in a well-stocked gift shop with locally handmade products, knowledgeable guided tour from a fellow who knew his subject matter, and an all round pleasant experience. Highly recommended!

I took my son for a birthday party here and it was just amazing!!! I have lived in Pickering for 14 years and had never gone. We loved it, and the themed birthday party was just unreal.

This is a great little spot in a nice little Glen that realistically depicts life in early Ontario. The buildings, the tools and clothes, etc. Very educational, and fun.

No, it doesn't open until April, lots of outdoor stuff, so needs to be not so muddy or snowy. Lots of seasonal stuff and events there, cannot post a link for some weird reason.
