This re-creation of the lives of the Ukrainian homesteaders and farmers is so informative. A very good tour with a knowledgeable guide is available. Most of the staff are from the area and this is their history of their families and conveyed so well. Staff in period dress are in many of the buildings. Informative signage is throughout the park.... More

A few of us went and enjoyed the step back in time, like to to see and old fashioned candy to purchase. The actors did an amazing job the blacksmith was interesting to watch, we spent just over 3 hours and would recommend others to go for the educational experience.

I visited this place in August and had a great experience. My fiance and I were excited to see that they had incorporated Pokemon Go! into the experience with a map of all of the Pokestop locations and questions we had to ask the interpreters to complete a questionnaire that earned us a two for one entry to the park...

My family and I just visited the village. Everyone in our family had been here before but the last time for my husband and I was nearly 14 years ago. We spent roughly 3 hours at the park and although they are working on newer areas there was plenty to see. The interpreters at the site are fun to talk... More

This is an interesting place with lots of history about the migration of Ukrainians to this area. The houses are well maintained and the role-playing hosts are fun to talk to. It is large so there is a lot of walking and it takes a long time to see all of the village. Great ethic food is available.

After several visits there is always more to see. Helpful and pleasant staff, live demonstrations are incredible. Food is just OK unless you attend on a special event day and there are more choices. Good family day out.

We went for the 125th anniversary of Ukrainian Settlers. The vendors were amazing. .live demonstrations of weaving, pysankas (Ukrainian Easter eggs), and so much more! There were Ukrainian singers and dancers! A priest gave a blessing for Chornobyl... many folks were dressed up in traditional clothing. This can easily be an all day affair... dress for the weather with good... More
