Arborg and District Multicultural Heritage Village

Located just east of Arborg along Highway 68, on a lush green river front lot, the Arborg and District Multicultural Heritage Village sprawls out as if it is truly a little town. The Heritage Village has grown each year since the first building was moved on site. As you take a walk around this gorgeous property you will be either reminded or enlightened by the memories of the past, and the history of rural/ multicultural life before 1930.

The area's European immigrantion and Indigenous culture are explored in a wonderfully immersive atmosphere. Guided 1.5 – 2 hour tours can be booked, with shorter tours available.
