Description From Owner:

  • Nestled along the banks of the historic Indian River, Lang Pioneer Village Museum features over 30 restored and furnished buildings.
  • Discover the history and culture of the Micchi Saagiig (Mississaguas) at Aabnaabin Camp.
  • Throughout the village, costumed interpreters will introduce you to the people, trades and events that have helped shape local history.
  • A photographer's paradise, the Village is complete with lanes and pathways, farm animals, rail and stump fences, vegetable and herb gardens, as well as other authentic details of a 19th century hamlet.

My experience with Lang Pioneer Village was during Applefest. What an amazing day! So many well informed costumed volunteers. The building and grounds were beautifully maintained.

There is a rich variety of authentic historical buildings and artifacts here, graced by the presence of well-informed costumed guides. I was particularly intrigued by the world class weaving and loom exhibit. We spent a beautiful day here, stopping only to eat our picnic lunch.

Wow, this place is a gem! The museum is so well-kept. Even though some of the buildings are run by volunteers, they were so enthusiastic and knowledgeable that it felt like they were not volunteers! We really enjoyed walking the grounds even though most of the visit was self-guided. The family price of $30 was so reasonable and we definitely recommend this place to anyone who enjoys learning about history! To be honest, the visit inspires us to want to be more like pioneers - growing our own food (we already do some of that) and learning how to use a loom and blacksmith!

What a fabulous place! It's not only well kept and well run, but it's overwhelmingly full of interesting and educational information. The accompanying map provided at the main gate was so helpful. The staff was lovely and really helped answer questions and addressed all the many nuances about pioneer life. My children were thrilled with Lang so this place will appeal to all kinds of folks! The canteen was well stocked and the food was delicious! The property was bigger than I had expected! The staff dressed in period outfits were such a nice touch. I will be back here with my family!!

Our two Grandchildren (7 & nearly 9) were sort of not another village museum! However when they got through doors they loved it. We have been to several of these sites such as Black creek, Upper Canada this is much smaller than Upper Canada but has a lot packed in. The kids and us enjoyed most the First Nation woman explaining the way of life of her people in times past and the significance of the branch and hide tepee we sat in. Schoolroom was near the top too they did the work on the board on their slates, the teacher rang the bell and sent them out to play they loved that. Perhaps she wanted to get rid of them! Just joking. The mill was fascinating but we were disappointed they had none of their milled flour for sale.Kids thought the mill boring but it was the end of a long hot day. It was a good weather day before school returned and we were surprised how few visitors there were considering what a great place it was to enjoy and learn of the history of this part of Canada. Good value BBQ food perfect except for the wasps.
