Experience the Past

Mennonite Heritage Village (MHV)

Steinbach, Manitoba

Explore a turn-of-the century Russian Mennonite street village on MHV’s 40 acre site. Taste traditional Mennonite fare at the museum’s Livery Barn Restaurant, and explore a classic Mennonite housebarn and a fully operational Dutch windmill during its summer season. View historic and heirloom treasures from Poland and Russia to Canada, displayed in the permanent and Gerhard Ens galleries, and find that perfect souvenir at Village Books and Gifts, all open year-round in the Village Centre.

There is always something new to experience. With changing annual themes and temporary exhibits celebrating the Mennonite heritage and culture, new artifacts donated each year, and a broad range of activities and demonstrations.

Neubergthal Heritage Foundation (NHF)

Neubergthal, MB

Neubergthal is the best, most authentic location on the prairies to experience some of the realities of early permanent agricultural settlement.

Parks Canada designated Neubergthal as a National Historic Site after searching to find a place to show and tell stories of agriculture and early settlement on the prairies. The entire village was designated as having “historical and architectural national significance,” with many older original buildings and an authentic village and yard pattern.

The mission of Neubergthal Heritage Foundation (NHF) is to preserve aspects of this heritage and find appropriate and interesting ways to share and present this heritage.

About the Society
