Travel Through Time

Explore a turn-of-the century Russian Mennonite street village on our 40 acre site. Taste traditional ethnic fare at the museum’s Livery Barn Restaurant, and explore a classic Mennonite housebarn and a fully operational Dutch windmill during our summer season. View historic and heirloom treasures from Poland and Russia to Canada, displayed in the Main and Gerhard Ens galleries, and find that perfect souvenir at Village Books & Gifts, all open year-round in the Village Centre.

There is always something new to experience. The changing annual themes and temporary exhibits, along with new artefacts donated each year, celebrate the Mennonite heritage and culture. We also offer a broad range of activities and demonstrations, from wagon rides to bread baking, throughout the summer on our Festival days. All of these features combine in this bustling village to offer a fresh experience with each visit.
