A great chance to learn about our Canadian history. The tour bus is well worth the cost to get around efficiently. The staff are knowledgeable band friendly. It is a beautiful location, no wonder why the métis settled there.

Walter Andreeff

As a Métis man whose ancestors were present here in 1885, I had an instant feeling of deja-vu when I drove into the area and something in my soul was stirred. Days later as we did the walk/march from the camp with the people, I was instantly moved by excitement and sadness when the bells rang in the church as our flag-carrying group approached the cemetery where the Métis Patriots were laid to rest. I'm a descendant of the Goulet family who lived in this area and although this was my first visit to Batoche: I know this place. My great grandfather fought for his family here in 1885 and was placed in jail after the surrender.

Great place to learn about Louis Real and that part of history of SK. I really like the hiking trails rolling on top, which provides sort of bird’s eye view about South SK River.

Luke Warman

Christopher Mirosovsky

The staff are exceptionally knowledgable. The grounds are well kept for the walking tour and the whole experience is very educational. For roughly $10 admission you are gaining very insightful information into Saskatchewan's history. Highly recommend checking this place out.

Milton Davies

Great little gem if a site if you take the time. There's some great views if you walk the paths.

Ian Jensen

We've visited Batoche about 5 times over the years and keep coming back because the story is so compelling. The interpretive Centre casts a thoughtful eye on the history and makes it relevant to today. The guides offer great context to the structures and their relative importance. Quiet, pretty, and well worth it. Pairs nicely with a journey north along the river to the St Laurent ferry which ultimately connects to Fort Carlton.

Jerome Chabot

Great and rich history. The views are absolutely stunning.

Gini Beaumont

Even with a lack of programming due to Covid this site is full of friendly and knowledgeable staff, good information, well preserved buildings and interesting perspectives on the "rebellion" and the lives being lived here during those times

Kf Becker

Very good place

Terron Wright


My kids and I, love this place. So much.

Zdenek Podsednik

Some history buffs are probably aware of the significance of this place. For average guy ( like me ) it was a major eye opener to learn about what happen here and about the Metis nation in general. A bit of dark history our ( Canadian ) government has here but it is being acknowledged by this National Park. Very informative and an eye opener. Very well done is the indoor exhibit. And gift shop has some interesting items.

Sheri Lucas

Such a great place to visit - a huge property with so much history. We visited in September and the weather was perfect snd so few visitors. Our don watched a beaver fall a tree and we watched it walk away with the branch. Highly recommend!

Doug Jarvis

Brenda Doyle

Off the beaton path on a road that could use upgrading. This may not have been as much of an issue if we weren't towing a trailer. The historic site itself was very well done with lots to see and do.

AAA Custom Concrete Design

I have one and only one thing to say about this place. The food stand says “traditional food” and is selling bannock. Which is pulled out of a freezer and microwaved by a cpl white teenagers lol. It’s like a soggy wonder bread hamburger bun. They better hope Gordon Ramsey never stops here

Shevy David

Beautiful and historic

Madeline Frances

Kaitlyn Ferguson


Great place to go for a hike along the river and see some important historical buildings, just an hour outside of Saskatoon.

Esperanza Castro Cartro

Kevin p

this place has alot of information very informative

Melanie Lingard

We started with the movie so the kids had an understanding of the Battle at Batoche. Then the interactive tour where people played actual villagers at Batoche. After, we walked through what interested us and had a snack. Our guide, the actors and even the shuttle driver were so personable and knowledgeable. When I told the kids we were stopping here on our holidays they grumbled about "learning", but later thanked me for taking them.

Sebastian Kluth

Batoche National Historic Site is a wonderful place to visit with a church, cemetery and farm houses that represent life of Metis residents in the mid-nineteenth century. There are numerous activities on site during the summer such as bicycle races. Visiting the entire site takes at least three hours.

Ricardo Quijada

Darren Bolme

We weren't there very long we could only stop for a few minutes but the people were very nice to us and he allowed us to look around even though we should have had to pay inside the building

Awesome tour go you'll really see where they fought.

Alicia Marie

Revisited after 20 years and it was still nice. Staff was so friendly and knowledgable! They even helped give us an earlier tour to the East village.

Doug Anderson

Much of Canadian history glosses over the impact European settlers had on the indigenous peoples (and metis) of Canada. Batoche is a good bit of history to show who the Metis people were, and what the government of Canada did to them, repeatedly, during the westward expansion. You don't need to spend a whole day here, but come for a few hours and see a little know part of our past.

Rick Caron

Nice place.....great history

Sharon Brown

Eilish McCallum

The Metis history in a nutshell. Lots of exhibits, nice countryside. Great guides and staff.

Payton Tapp

I loved this place because we got to see everything

yo bussey

As we approached the site we were shocked to see that the area surrounding Batoche is very sparsely populated. History tells us that in 1885 the Canadian government sent troops here to quell a resistance. The story goes that the government of the day wanted to survey the land for new settlers, but the Métis, who had already been living at Batoche for years, were having none of it. We all know how that ended - with the Métis being gunned off the land and Louis Riel hanged for treason. Back to today, I can’t help but wonder why the government of 1885 couldn’t just go around Batoche and leave the Métis in peace. True reconciliation would mean recognizing this historic injustice and returning Batoche back to the Métis.

Carlotta Hooghiem

Very informative and interesting.

Claire Yvonne (Bang Up Productions)

A beautiful historic place! And huge portions of food in their restaurant.


Needs to have more activities

Jees Mohan

Established in 1872, this Métis settlement was the site of the historical Battle of Batoche during the Northwest Rebellion of 1885 and is now a National Historic Site in Canada. Situated in the heart of the prairies on the South Saskatchewan River, it is here that Louis Riel was infamously defeated and a new country was formed. Walking through this historical landmark, you realize what an important moment this was for Canadian history; in fact, you can still see some of the bullet holes from the final battle. Not just for history buffs, take the family and spend the day walking in the shoes of Métis settlers on the shores of the river and learn how the old way of life disappeared and a new one began.

Liz Anderson

There is a lot of history here. If you don't know anything about Saskatchewan, this is where you should go first. You'll learn about Louis Riel, Gabriel Dumont, and all the families who lived and died during the Red River Rebellion, when the government tried to intervene in the people's lives.

Floyd Pattison

Very interesting and eye opening, friendly helpful staff.

bryan giesbrecht

Very interesting lots of historical information about Reil

Jessica DeWitt

Gorgeous historic site with excellent interpretation. I’m glad I finally visited. I spent my first visit focusing on the historical interpretation, but I’d love to go back and just hike for a day. Their site historical film was pretty terrible though. Parks Canada, y’all should fund a new one.

Surprisingly one of the best sites we have visited, movie (40min) is a tad too long but allows greater preview of site. Pay the $2.40/person for the shuttle for the best guided tour, Ronald shared fantastic stories! "Journey Back in Time" skit by staff was really enjoyed by our 9 & 11 year old. We were surprised to spend over 4 hours here with our family.

Run by Parks Canada what an amazing place. Guided tours, very knowledgeable staff about the history of the Great West Rebellion. Original Church and rectory and is still standing and also used for weddings and one service a year. The information center and museum is a beautiful building and set up. Great walking trails with interpreted sign posts. We had lunch at the vistor center good traditional Metis cuisine. Tourtiere was fabulous. This is a must see.

Robo Review

I wish stronger views were portrayed. Without prior knowledge I wouldn't have understood very much, or understood the significance. Also, gives a bad impression of government run facilities. The restaurant/food cafeteria closed before the park, meaning at the end of the day 20 people wanted to buy a snack for the drive home, but couldn't because it was already closed. Pretend you're supposed to recover costs. I love PC

Michael Kotelko

Good service and food at restaurant. Very interesting displays. Lots of walking on the site if you wish. Golf cart may be available for elderly.

Daisy Zhang

Amazing place

Jerre Stone

Josh Doerksen

Great place to start learning about Riel and his fight for the recognition of Metis and Aboriginal rights. Do not be fooled by the Government of Canada's telling of Riel, do additional reading on your own. If Riel had his way Canada would have ended at Manitoba, our country has whitewashed his noble story.

This is a very beautiful location just an hour outside of Saskatoon.The museum has important information about the Metis history in this region and in Canada.The tour of the church and house were also quite informative,and the guide interpreting to us was very knowledgeable. The walking trails around this site are gorgeous! We will definitely return.

Just an hour's drive from Saskatoon for the best bannock in the world! (We made the trip to see the "Walking With Our Sisters" art installation which was amazing in its impact both emotionally and culturally.) The Batoche site is well worth the visit to remind us of the battle that occurred there, the struggles of the Metis, and of the early settlement days in Saskatchewan's history.

Very interesting history here as to the treatment of the Metis by Sir John A. MacDonald.

5* for the actual site. 3* for the website and on-site communication. I missed over half of what I came to see because of the scheduling and then the shuttle tour route didn't cover what the map seemed to indicate it did. If you want to see the theater presentation, do the shuttle tour and still have time to see the East Village or do any exploring on foot, give yourself a good 4-5 hours. There is a little Cafe on site with outdoor seating. The Bannock and Tourtiere were very good, and the Bison soup smelled delicious!

Jed Huntley


My sister and I had a wonderful time and our tour guide was absolutely fantastic. Would highly recommend going there ❤❤

Jeff Takagi

Lots to see! Really liked the petting zoo and pony rides at Caron farm and the Bannack was so good we went back for thirds. (the ponies and petting zoo was there for kidsfest and may not be available all the time)
