About Black Creek Pioneer Village, Toronto
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
Got married here in October! The food was fantastic, the on site event organizer was amazing like having a personalized wedding planner. The staff made getting married as stress free as possible. My guests raved about the food and how beautiful the venue was. The pictures turned out amazing! I'd recommend the veue to anyone. It's also a very cool place to just spend the day with the family!
This a place I never tire of. Went with family and with friends. People think it is just a place for school trips. Not so. If you like history, you will love the historical interpreters who are very keen to share their knowledge with you. Lovely on a sunny day! Closed in winter. Enjoy!
Loved them. Beautiful buildings they have gathered from all over. Their feel is genuine and easy to navigate. Their actors/historians are amazing, I felt like I got something out of everyone I spoke with. My favorite was the tinsmith demonstrating hurricane lanterns and the flaming figgy pudding with a brief and engaging history of Christmas dinner. So much fun. I will definitely return in the spring and summer and the fall and spend a full day there.
If you love Christmas, the old-fashioned Christmas program is a must! You get to learn a lot about the ancient traditions through the staff’ skilled storytelling and acting. I was specially amazed by the “Trim the tree” presentation delivered by Ansley Newline. It was super entertaining as both kids and adults got to decorate a tree while we were listening to the origin of things that we do in our houses for Christmas. Being able to taste a Christmas pudding and to sing along our favourite Christmas carols played on the piano in the cosy parlour of Doctor’s House made the experience unique and special. And don’t miss out the Apple Cider; it is so fresh and delicious! The experience would have been 5 stars if they would not run out of roasted chestnuts at 2 pm. All in all it was a totally worthy experience.
The village was exceptional! Really neat and well put together. The reason for the 3 star review is that many of the interpreters did not even engage or acknowledge us (lady in the printing press), and others did not have much knowledge about the craft they were interpreting. A few interpreters were great (such as in Major Macs house). Would recommend the park have learning class on how to interpret history.
