Black Creek Pioneer Village - Review
This 30 acre open air heritage museum, with 40 carefully reconstructed period buildings complete with period furnishings, recreates what a typical Ontario neighborhood or town may have looked in the early-to-mid-19th century. The buildings are what you’d typically expect in a small town - homes, farms, church, a general store, a blacksmith's shop, a hotel, a gunshop, and a weaver shop. There is also a water-powered grist mill. The Black Creek Historic Brewery is a growing favourite, with period ales and porters brewed by tour guides in period costume.

Black Creek Pioneer Village, Toronto Reviews
Nice place to walk around. We went for the Fall Fair. There were some fun added activities. It is a pioneer village, so if you're looking for something flashy, this isn't it. But we had a great time wandering around. There are very limited food options. The food place outside has burgers and hot dogs, no French fries, but happily they do have veggie burgers.
I never got to go on a field trip here, so today was my first visit. It's now super easy to get to by TTC (only about a ten minute walk). The buildings are beautiful, bit hot, but that's not unexpected. The staff are nice and knowledgeable. There is a beer tasting in the basement of one of the buildings which was very neat. I'm really interested in print making, weaving, sewing and all that kind of stuff so I found it fascinating. Went with a few friends and had a picnic lunch, I wanted to sit on the grass but the guys didn't want to so took advantage of the proper seating they have. Washrooms were super clean, there is a water fountain/water bottle filling station right by the washrooms which was also handy. Also at the start there's an exhibit thing where you can pick a character and follow them around the place, my group dumbly each picked one which made it difficult since you go to different places in a different order based on characters...so maybe don't do that. Pick one and follow them around.
I attended a wedding here. It's a lovely place to have a wedding with lots of wonderful photo ops due to all the historic buildings. The service and food was also excellent. Just a tip, if you want to have an outdoor wedding, make sure you do it in the summer as it gets quite cold in the evening in the fall.
Varied collection of buildings, lots of activities for kids (including a family play). Go when the weather is nice since it is an outdoor village. When I went on a sunny day in 2016 this place was amazing! Definitely worth the trek up there. Great memories.
This is an interesting place for kids and adults alike! They offer visitors a chance to experience what life was like in the days of the early settlers. Black Creek is a “working village” with everything from discovery stations to meeting spaces to horse drawn carriage rides and farmyard animals friends. With lots to explore this place is well worth a trip with the kids or on a date. The gift shop has many interesting items made from local Canadian artists/companies. Parking is $7/car/day and admission can add up ($15/adult and $11/child ages 5 and up). Consider checking it out during the Doors Open Toronto event in May when admission is free for all.
