I have loved visiting Pioneer Village since I was a child. It's a relaxing, fun day spent outside. You can wander the buildings as you wish and there are sometimes events and extra activities, as well as seasonal events. The staff is great and if you are interested, you can chat with them and learn so many things about history. It's a very good place to go to generate discussions with kids about historical life and show them examples in an accessible way. There are plenty of opportunities for photos of the houses, wildlife (mostly birds) and nature, farm animals, or taking portraits. I have taken my son since he was a toddler and he always enjoys it too. He is 6 and the last time we went, he didn't want to leave even after a few hours! It was not crowded at all (just steady) and very low key, which was great for a hot summer afternoon. The little cafe has just the right number of choices (soups, sandwiches, ice cream, etc.) and the food is always good. The gift shop has so many lovely and fun items in a range of prices that are very fair. It feels like being outside of the city even though it's not far at all. You can also go nearby to hiking trails, the campground, etc. I think almost anyone could have a great time here whether they are interested in history or not!

The village is a great place to take out of town out of country visitors to give them a taste of the history of London and area.

It was nice to see the history. I was with relatives from the Netherlands. They very much enjoyed it. The persons in the houses, giving information, was very nice. We enjoyed the food at the cafeteria as well.

A beautifully restored village takes us back in time to the age of the pioneers who were perhaps our grandparents or our parents. This is an excellent history lesson for today's young people who have not endured the hardships of those early years in our history.

Hello Bob, Life certainly was not as easy or romantic as many people think! We think it is so important to talk about how things have changed, stayed the same, and how some experiences though distant in time, place, and scale, are remarkably similar. Thank you for joining us and we hope to see you again soon!
