we went on a smokey afternoon that happened to coincide with 'KidsFest', the staff are all very friendly, the outbuildings are informative as is the interpretive centre, all ages would enjoy

Who'd have thought that a near-forgotten tale of early settlement and a bloodied riverbank could be so interesting! The museum is beautifully set up, the restored buildings and the old grave yard evoke a real spirit of that past.

This is where Louis Riel fought the British over the rights for the Metis land, this is a very interesting fort reconstructed with many original artifacts, guided tour is helpful in understanding what happened at Batoche in the 1800's. The church with original bullet holes...More

This is a few miles off of the highway between Prince Albert and Saskatoon, but worth seeing. Tranquilly locating on the Saskatchewan River, gives a good perspective of early Metis settler life, and was not busy. As it is a Park, the admission can be...More

I attended the Batoche National Historic Site with my daughter's class last month. The film explaining the battle (viewed before the walking tour) was very well done and nicely paced; both kids and adults were engaged in the story. The ensuing tour of the site...More

I wasn't sure what to expect but I didn't expect to go to an actual town. It's both amazing and surprising that they left the old buildings from the Metis community there and preserved them as a historical site. Very interesting for history buffs and...More
