Acadian Historic Village, 15km west of Caraquet, is a major historical reconstruction set up like a village of old. Thirty-three original buildings have been relocated to the site, and animators in period costumes reflect life from 1780 to 1880. Several hours are required to have a good look, and then you'll definitely want to eat. For that, there are old-fashioned sit-down Acadian meals at La Table des Ancêtres, the 1910 historical menu at the Château Albert dining room and several snack bars.

The village has a program for kids ($35), which provides them with a costume and seven hours of supervised historical activities.
