A great way to see how the natives lived. You can visit a long house, eat a traditional meal, and even make a necklace. It is a great way to learn about history

This is a huge museum that showcase a reproduction of life-like Huron Wendat village. They have the longhouse and tent, together with all the amenities that it offers to the wendat people at that time. They displayed how wendat people preserve their food, what they wear, their art, their beliefs and even how their burial place look like.They have separate... More

Our group lunch at the hotel was offered at a reasonable price and it was very tasty and generous. The menu ``à la carte`` and the wine was evidently priced... More

We found the village and the culture and history of how they've adapted interesting. I learned quite a bit. We went on the tour that was in English and found it very informative. We did pick up some items from the gift shop as well - no taxes was a bonus and there wasn't anything made in China either. We... More

I loved learning about our First Nation friends. The long house was very interesting as was the meeting hut? We met a citezen of Wendake and he showed us around his village and took us shopping! We've made ourselves a new friend. We even did a little trading with him! Wendake is a must see when visiting Quebec. I'd definitely... More

While at Quebec City we have had good and less good visits. This one was the best. Now you can do a pay as you go, or all inclusive. We did pay as you go ! We had tried to not pump the kids too much, but the visit of the 'long house' was great, light basic information. And our... More

I came to see Huron site without expectations. And in the beginning even made a fool of myself : the white hosts at this place did not inspire me to be serious. It all changed when during the tour I learned that the Hurons, and here I stopped calling them this French name, they are Wendat in their native tongue,... More
