Firstly getting charged $27 for looking at wood and animal skin is a total rip off !! No english tour or guide. All the explanations are in FRENCH ! Took almost half hour extra to find the place. The worst tourist attraction ever. The only positive side is that the effort made to preserve the culture is worth crediting.

We went to this location with a guided tour group. We had 50 students and it was great. Lots of local history and great insight into another of our First Nations cultures. It was very cool! Great gift shop at the end also showcasing local foods and arts.

We had a great evening here as a part of a business conference. The food was great, live French Canadian music and nice gift shop with Aboriginal art and items from across Canada. The youth who performed were excellent. Some of the displays are dated and need sprucing up. To me this site showcased the ways that the Aboriginal people... More

So even though I emailed to ask about an English guide, and they told me to come anytime on a certain day, when I arrived, there was no English guide. And the French tour had left 10 minutes earlier (on the hour, although they said in their email that there was no schedule of tours). Luckily I managed to catch... More

Interesting cultural site. They rebuilt the building the Huron Wendat were living in or using. The guide gives a lot of interesting information of the way of living if that first nation more than 400 years ago. A must if you come to Quebec City but not easy to get there if you don't have a car.

I enjoyed every moment of our stay in this place. The guide was great, explaining everything properly. It is not commercial the site at all, nobody is pushing to buy, just if you consider to do so. They have a huge shop as well, where you can buy all kind of things, not expensive (some of the items even cheaper... More

My wife had always wanted to learn more about the native Indians so this visit was an important one for her. We arrived on Labour Day and it was drizzling but the guides at the centre were all enthusiastic and smiling. They were all dressed in their traditional costumes and carried out a dance routine at the start of the... More

We wanted to visit the Huron Wendat Museum and I put the postcode into my sat nav. This brought me only to some houses. Eventually I found what I believed was the museum only to find out back at home that this was not the museum I wanted to visit (I wanted to visit the modern museum with the attached... More

The guided tour was great, as was the dancing. We ate at the restaurant on site, and the food was different and tasty. A must see attraction while in Quebec.
