You should take exit 181 from Highway 20. For more detail about the route to take, visit the How to get there section.

Yes, access to the La Bassine Water Play Park is included with admission to the Village. There is no rate for the water play park only since this section is an integral part of the Village.

No, there are several water features but no pool. Note that you are not permitted to walk around the streets of the Village or the period houses in a swimsuit or shirtless. This is permitted only at the La Bassine Water Play Park.
Of course! Picnic areas have been set up at various locations at the Village. Refer to the map for more details.
There is no maximum number of children in the family rate. However, it is very important to note that the family rate applies only to a couple and their children, that is, a group formed by the mother and father (or two same-sex partners) and their children. A single adult accompanied by his/her children cannot be paired with another adult (brother, sister or friend) to form a “family” in order to benefit from the family rate.
No, reservations are not required to come visit the Village in the summer season. However, reservations are required for the Sweet Village (sugar shack) and reservations are strongly recommended for the visit and meal packages during the Haunted Village and the Desjardins Village in Lights because space is limited. Groups that want to eat at the Village must also make reservations in advance. To make a reservation, contact us at 1 877 710-0267, by e-mail at [email protected] or complete the following reservation group form.
For the safety of our visitors, we cannot allow companion animals at the Village Québécois d’Antan. However, we do allow all service animals. Owners must prove that their dog has received proper training by showing their dog’s ID card. This card contains the name of the training school, the name of the owner of the dog and a photo of the animal.

Unfortunately, the Village Québécois d’Antan is not suitable for people with reduced mobility. You can explore the Village in a wheelchair, but the period houses are difficult to access because they do not have a ramp. In addition, most buildings have stairs in front of the entrance. Please also note that the streets of the Village are dirt roads. As a result, it may be more difficult to move about on rainy days. However, Village Québécois d’Antan accepts tourist and leisure companion stickers and rents scooters ($). Note that our scooter rental service is offered for the summer season only (June to September). In addition, due to the limited number of scooters, we suggest reserving one in advance by calling 1 877 710-0267 ext. 221.

The other points of sale (the Doughnut Shop, the Bakery, the Cheese Shop and the casses-croûtes) accept cash only.
