PROVINCIAL HERITAGE PLACE
Step into a real Acadian time with the interpreters as they go about their chores in period buildings; view fields and farmyards stocked with animals that the early Acadians raised to support themselves.
The atmosphere and authenticity of the site’s historical reconstruction assure you of memorable moments in a pastoral setting, evoking the living conditions of the Acadians.
This attraction has won a number of prestigious awards, including the Phoenix Award for its authentic character. It brings to life the ancestral customs and traditional trades of Acadians from 1770 to 1949.
The Village Historique Acadien is also the only Canadian site amongst a list of 10 “Living History Sites to Love” chosen by Grandparents.com. The website suggests activities grandparents can do with their grandchildren. The Village is seen as a destination for all ages, as much fun for children as it is for parents and grandparents.
The memory of this charming place and its inhabitants will stay with you long after you leave.
The Village Historique Acadien welcomes one and all to walk the historical property during the fall, winter and spring months, free of charge. This is a perfect opportunity to discover the beauty and uniqueness of the village while strolling 2.5 km (1.6 mi.) around the premises. Certain restrictions apply.
