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.

I was very intrigued when I read about this on the internet... There aren't many places in Canada that you can go and learn about the first nations people from the people themselves. It costs $13 for the tour which is informative enough, but could have had a little more information for those of us who wanted to delve into... More

Wow! Glad I took a 20 minute walk from hotel to visit village traditionnel! You could go there by car too. Lots of parking. Well worth the visit. There were some group visits but I opted to go alone and was able to follow trails and signage. Writing is only in French for the most part so if you cannot... More

I was able to have a solo tour with the lovely English-speaking guide. The village is a small recreation of a traditional village. It is not al all slick or high tech but rather as it should be rustic and handmade.I was very interested in the display of canoe construction, the sweat "lodge", and the long house. I had difficulty... More
