We invite you to travel back in time, and above all, have fun. Here are a few tips for your visit:
Wear appropriate outdoor walking shoes and outdoor clothes.
When visiting Black Creek, be sure to wear outdoor footwear appropriate for an outdoor setting. You will be walking on wooden boardwalks and dirt "country" roads.
Arrive with an adventurous spirit.
Let your curiosity be your guide. Go inside the buildings, examine the details of what you see, and ask the interpreter how the building was used, who used it, and why things were the way they were.
Give yourself time.
Take the opportunity to spend time with the historic interpreters and enjoy the demonstrations and activities. Three to four hours is sufficient for most people.
Be prepared to ask questions.
Because we offer an authentic historic Village experience, you will not find many informative signs. But you will find many knowledgeable interpreters and trades people in period dress, who are there to explain things. Approach them. Ask them lots of questions.
Look for special demonstrations and activities.
Every day at Black Creek Pioneer Village is different. Each day has its own schedule of demonstrations, activities and performances. Ask for details at the admission desk when you arrive.
