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.

The service is friendly from the reception. I liked the place. I visited the place in winter, the decoration is beautiful. They teach you their traditional dance and Christmas carols all with live music. Don´t forget to try the hot apple cider with a lemon cookie that is my favorite. Everything they bake there is delicious.
An amazing blast from the past hidden away in a busy urban area. Truely a jewel of Toronto that too many people seem to over look or forget about. With the subway now close by, and nightlife activities eager to associate with Black Creek Pioneer Village, there is room for everyone to enjoy. From tourist to locals, historians to lovers, and kids of all ages; you will regret not visiting this magical location.
Honestly I had a very pleasant experience. I had gone when I was younger and had to go again recently for a university assignment. The costumed actors are knowledgeable. I don’t imagine it’s easy doing what they do. The lemon cookies at the Halfway House were tasty. It’s odd they didn’t have any First Nations costumed actors when I went (Tuesday, Fall, 2018) though. Because I’m sure First Nations people existed in 1867 Ontario. It was their land this was all built on after all. Something BCPV should think about if they haven’t already. It’s shady not to include an entire race of people out of a history they were a part of.
Black Creek Pioneer Village is an amazing little place full of adventure around every turn. City employees in period-dress share insights into the original buildings and way of life a century ago in the Toronto area. Buy beer or bread made right on site. Folks do use the old church house for weddings. Fall days and certain weekends there are horse rides for $2/person with young children free. Pick up prints of old newspapers or maps at the printing press house. Visit small and big animals around the farms. Well worth a visit for 3 to 4 hours.
We attend Black Creek Pioneer Village each year with Grade 3 students for the Experience and Explore program. Our tour guides have always been excellent and engaging for students. They really enjoy seeing the buildings, the tools, and the farm animals. The program is well prepared with a short amount of time in the middle to allow students to eat their lunches before breaking out into hands-on pioneer activities. Ex) trying on pioneer clothing, spinning wool, playing pioneer games. Overall, I give Black Creek and their programs 5 stars. We will continue to return each year.
