My kids and I always enjoy a trip to pioneer village. Especially great is the Halloween wagon rides.
Here you walk through several pieces of the last two centuries. How interesting to see how things were done by the pioneers, then a couple of generations after that. Nice little vignettes in each house, school, church, stable, farm. Don't miss it. The kids will love it and from time to time there are special functions. The staff dress in... More
A great way to spend an afternoon. See the farm animals up close. The lambs are lovely in the spring. Explore the newspaper office to see how printing was more than pushing a button. Enjoy the gardens for most of the season. There are many special activities and educational events throughout the season. Wonderful, hands-on experience for everyone.
Went to have Thanksgiving Meal on the Thanksgiving Long Weekend. I was a little disappointed there wasn't a more interactive food creation process, or a specific presentation about the meal and the history of the meal. Was sort of expecting some talk about how pioneers would have prepared food for their thanksgiving diner, or even what food was traditionally grown.... More
We visit "The Village " regularly with our grand children 5 & 6 years of age and they always have a wonderful time. A great learning experience and opportunity to just stroll , chat and tell stories of "the way it was". I actually attended the school house on the site so this place does have special meaning for me.
Not as large as some villages, but very enjoyable. Very knowledgeable staff at the buildings. There were several buildings closed to viewing. Bathrooms were very clean, which is always a plus. Worth a stop.
if you have kids or not, just go here. They have greatly improved over the last 5 years or so and every time we come back there's something new! The volunteers are awesome! Most of them are very good actors. Go for the event days if you get bored quickly. Have lunch at the restaurant, always a good original bite!
I had gone as a child, but going again recently was a great experience to learn more. It's wonderful to see local history being preserved like this. All buildings are authentic local places that have been moved to the site, as well many of the belongings inside are true artifacts. The staff are very knowledgable and are in character. The... More
The Blacksmith is amazing. He actually fixes stuff for the village and does not just make trinkets out of iron. The village is repairing and moving buildings onto concrete foundations. The farm is a great place to see sheep, geese, chickens and sometimes turkeys. The sawmill works and cuts lumber for repairs. The staff is quite knowledgeable of the local... More
My wife and I have lived in the area of London, Ontario for over 20 years and have been meaning to visit this attraction for a long time. This year we finally made the visit along with my brother and we all found it very enjoyable as we find most historic sites to be. This is a nicely laid out... More
