Very interesting look into Alberta's recent past. Even more interesting if you are of Ukrainian descent. Very knowledgeable and talented staff role-playing actual people that lived in 1890-1920s. There is a simple place to get a lunch there too (really good traditional Ukrainian dishes).

This is a great way to spend a couple of hours on a nice day. There are great paths to walk and explore the village, or you can take a horse-drawn wagon ride.

My wife and I went to the Heritage center along with our young grandchildren to show them how prairie life used to be and show some of the diverse cultures that helped settle this part of Canada. Very enjoyable and informative. Some of the stores/exhibits...More

Was fun to visit the village. The staff did a great job of portraying their characters. Most seemed to be able to speak Ukrainian as well. I enjoyed the grain elevator the most. Finding out how the bins, pulleys etc worked was interesting. It had...More

Visiting the Ukrainian Village was like a trip down memory lane. From the old school houses to the hardware store and the grain elevator, it brought back so many memories of growing up in rural Alberta through the 60's and early 70's. Without moving too...More

Unfortunately we had to rush because it closed at 5 pm but what we saw was great. In each location was an actor who took on the identity of a settler and described life in "their" time. You could ask all the questions you wanted....More

Recently visited the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village as a family of 5. The parking attendants were unprofessional and poorly trained. The grounds are decently kept up on and we enjoyed the various flower displays. We enjoyed walking the grounds, but it would have been nice...More

It was easy to get around. There was a lot of young school children when we went so didn’t get to interact with staff as much as we would have liked. Staff were amazing. Knowledgeable and great actors!!
