This summer join us at Westfield Heritage Village and Be A Village Explorer. During July and August from Monday to Saturday visitors have a number of options to explore Westfield.
A Stroll Through History in the Countryside: Visitors are welcome to walk our grounds and trails from 9:00 to 4:00 p.m. While the historic buildings are closed use the self-guided brochure to learn more about the historical buildings that are preserved at this living history museum. A Picnic area and washrooms are available. Cost is $4.00 per adult and youth 17 years and younger are free. Hamilton Conservation Authority members are also free.
Build On Your Experience: Down load Westfield’s free game app to your phone and build on your fun. The download can be done at home before your visit or when you arrive at Westfield. Not only does the app provide a self-guided experience of the closed buildings, but also provides a fun game as you collect virtual artifacts to start your own new virtual farm.
Be A Village Explorer: Every afternoon in July and August from Monday to Saturday join our program interpreter for an engaging and interactive tour of Westfield at 2:00 p.m. This guided tour is approximately one and half hours in length and takes visitors inside 6-8 historical buildings including our very popular D’Aubigny Inn, School House, Train Station and General Store. The cost is $10.00 for an adult and $5.00 for a youth 6-17 years. Children 5 and under are free. ($4.00 will be subtracted for visitors who have already paid the self-guided fee or are a HCA Membership holder.)
Be An Ultimate Village Explorer: As always Westfield is open Sunday afternoon from 12:30 to 4:00 p.m. with our costumed volunteers on site providing interpretation and demonstrations. This coming Sunday, July 29, our resident volunteer art teacher will teach colour mixing, paint techniques and how to use a variety of brushes effectively to create trees and simple flowers. Children will create a small painting to take home. Admission for an adult is $12.00, a senior 65+ is $10.00, a youth 6-17 yrs is $6.50 and a child 5 and under is free.
