This was an extremely interesting place to visit. Shame we didn't have longer to spend here. Very well laid out and exhibits very good. Staff all helpful and friendly, they all dress up in period costumes. Children would enjoy it here too.

We went to Greenfield Village at the Henry Ford complex last week in Detroit so seeing the Pioneer Village the very next week made for a difficult bar to reach but it was interesting and we had fun.

This is a nice little pioneer village with old buildings that is probably not worth going out of your way to visit. But I went during a War of 1812 re-enactment, held for one weekend every September. Then the village really comes to life. This is an ideal time to visit. btw, the entrance is NOT on Fanshawe Park road... More

Took my 10 year old nephew to the village on a day that turned out to be a special dog days event. We were able to get his dog's name burned into wood at the blacksmith's shop which he loved. It's been awhile since I have been to the village, but I loved that they had a café and I... More

Amazing, Engaging, Fun. Two members of our family recently went to the Village, Age 23 and age 10, both remarked that they had a great day, and that the experience was far more wonderful they they had anticipated.

A beautiful setting for a pioneer village, lots to see and do with interpretors, re-enactments and much more. Very quiet and peaceful in the park but loads of events going on.
