Tips for Time Travelers

Dress for an Outdoor Adventure

Black Creek Pioneer Village is an outdoor museum, so dress for the weather. You’ll be walking on wooden boardwalks and dirt roads, which means you should choose your footwear accordingly.

Let Curiosity Be Your Guide

We strive for an authentic recreation of a mid-19th century rural Ontario community, so you won’t find a lot of informative signage. What you will find are interpreters and tradespeople, all in period dress, who are on hand to share their knowledge about the buildings, the artifacts, the trades and everything else about day-to-day Village life. Don’t be shy about approaching them — and ask lots of questions!

Give Yourself Time

Village life in the 1850s operated at a slower pace than our frenetic contemporary world. So take your time getting to know Black Creek. Explore the buildings and examine the details. Stop to talk with our interpreters, and check out some of the activities and demonstrations. Plan on giving yourself three to four hours.

Look for Special Activities and Demonstrations

Each day at Black Creek Pioneer Village has its own schedule of demonstrations, activities and performances. Ask for details at the admission desk when you arrive.
