Lang Pioneer Village Museum

104 Lang Road, Keene, ON K0L 2G0

Lang Pioneer Village Museum is a living history museum in the hamlet of Lang in Peterborough County, Ontario. It features more than 30 restored and furnished buildings, many of which were donated from the surrounding townships. The buildings, constructed between 1820 and 1899, are interpreted by costumed villagers portraying authentic 19th-century pioneer life.

Since 2014 the Museum has been the site of the Aabnaabin Encampment, a pre-colonization representation of a Michi Saagiig camp. Here, the story of the First Nations history and culture of the region is told by indigenous interpreters.

Lang Pioneer Village Museum is owned and operated by the County of Peterborough. It is open from approximately mid-May to mid-September.
