Black Creek Pioneer Village is Toronto’s Living Museum that demonstrates what life was like for pioneer settlers living in Ontario during the 19th centure. It’s located in the northern part of the city and can be reached by subway by going on the University-Spadina subway to Pioneer Village station.
I’m a history nerd so I grab any chance to go to a museum, but in the early summer Pioneer Village is one of my favourite spots to hit because not only is the weather fantastic for casually strolling through the historic town, but it also allows dogs on leash, which makes it a great place to visit with your four legged family members.
All of the staff were so friendly and accommodating with us, and while there are a lot of families with small children who were eager to pet the pups, it was easy enough to be upfront with the parents and let them know that while typically the girls are good with meeting strangers…after a full day in the sun with lots of kids trying to pet them…Maddie and Evie were pooped!
We packed a lunch and had a picnic in the village, we packed plenty of water and snacks for all the pups too!
There are so many highlights and things to see and try at the village. There are interpreters at every building with information and ready to demonstrate skills and crafts from the 19th century.
At the end of our trip we rounded out the day be checking out the village brewery where they brew beer in the same way they did more than 100 years ago. I can say that 19th century beer isn’t my thing…but I wouldn’t have known that unless I tried it!
If you’re looking to plan a day at Pioneer Village with your pup send me a message or leave a comment with any questions you may have!
