The history of Acadians
Aug. 2021 • Couples
Unfortunately, we came on a Sunday, so the site was closed. However, we were able to see the houses of Acadians and see the wooden statue of Philippe Mius d’Entremont, 1st Baron of Pobomcoup, who was an early settler of Acadia in the beginning of the 17th century. He was the forefather of d’Entremont families of Nova Scotia. Several d’Entremont families still live in Pubnico and have their lobster and fishing boats docked at the Dennis Point Harbor nearby.

A lovely glimpse into the life of the Acadian people
Aug. 2021
Stopped in while on a driving tour of the Pubnico region. A great place to stretch our legs and open our minds to the rich history of the Acadian people.
Free entry is an added, unexpected bonus.
To make the most of your visit, engage with the well-read, well-mannered and knowledgeable interpreters.

Acadien Village, 17 acres with interesting buildings and walking trails.
Aug. 2021
Very nice to visit 17 acres Acadien village for a few hours in West Pubnico and with very friendly museum staff. Maybe Le Village Acadien be open on weekend for families to visit in the future, as currently open M-F. Stay overnight at a very nice and relaxing local B&B nearby, Argyle By The Sea Bed & Breakfast.

Thank you for your review! I am glad you enjoyed your visit. In the past we were open 7 days a week but have had to decrease our hours during the Covid-19 pandemic. Hopefully we will be able to offer more opening hours again in the near future.

The staff make the experience!
Jul. 2021 • Friends
We stumbled on this gem while touring the province of Nova Scotia. Being from Acadian descent, we were thrilled to learn many interesting facts but especially to hear from the local French-speaking Acadian staff.
Would definitely recommend; ça vaut le détour!!!

Whether you have Acadian roots or not this is a good stop
Jul. 2020
We live in Nova Scotia but had never been to this historic village. We are so pleased we stopped on our little road trip around the province! The people were so helpful, very friendly and informative. They have done a very nice job in recreating this historic village and take pride in it's presentation. Even with the restrictions that the pandemic created they went out of their way to make sure you learned a lot and had fun doing it. Thank you for a memorable and educational stop!

Beautiful area with so much culture
Aug. 2020
My fiance and I visited this spot for the first time a couple of weeks ago on my first visit to Yarmouth County. The area is stunning and so well maintained. Due to covid restrictions we had our own personal tour guide to take us through the village. We learned so much about the people and even got to watch a demonstration from the black smith. We didn't feel rushed and everyone was so friendly. We highly recommend visiting Le Village Historique, it is suitable for all ages. There is also a walking trail in the area and a light house. Beautiful views as well.
