Lang Pioneer Village Museum News – New Museum Month Video

Lang, ONIt takes a village to run a historic village! Did you know that it takes a minimum of 130 staff and volunteers (volunteers being more than 80% of the 130) to run one of our special events? We could not do what we do without our volunteers!

Stay tuned over the next few weeks for some Museum Month videos featuring our volunteers!
Check out the video shown below to learn more from Lang Pioneer Village volunteers.

Welcome to Lang Pioneer Village Museum

At Lang Pioneer Village Museum, Peterborough County’s history is brought to life as costumed interpreters welcome you into over 30 homes and businesses located in the picturesque village. Representing a full century in time, the Village will not only take you back in time, but also through time. Costumed interpreters show the settler story of hardship and hope as they demonstrate traditional chores, trades and pastimes. Learn about the history and culture of local First Nations at Aabnaabin Camp and the Aabnaabin: Looking Back to Where We Come From exhibit, a partnership with Curve Lake and Hiawatha First Nation where the impacts of settlement on those who were here first are shared. Explore a working Grist Mill from 1846; discover the early technology which led to the development of the computer at the Weaver Shop, hear the sounds of history all around you – the hammer striking the anvil in the Blacksmith Shop, the ringing of the school bell, the bleating of heritage sheep, the creak of the woodstove opening and so much more. We invite you to come visit us today. It’s where history is happening!
