Great insight into the history of the Wendats

We visited the museum whilst staying in Midland. It is full of interesting details and artifacts of the Wendat Indians. Definitely worth a visit.

Great Museum with a lot of history. Spend a whole day here & at Little Lake Park just beside it! Hard to believe that in this small place packs a big punch!

A counterpart of Ste-Marie Among The Hurons is the Huronia Museum, which features reconstructions of First Nations buildings such as a sweat lodge and a long house. Inside the main building there's a museum of First Nation artefacts, along with a reconstruction of a general store. And lots more. The town of Midland is fortunate to have so much history,... More

Another museum in Midland, where you can visit a reconstructed village of the original native people. The site is nice, yet does not compare to Sainte Marie of the Hurons. In September, of course season is over, so no people were available to give additional information. The museum itself is an accumulation of items, pictures and documents found in the... More

Very friend staff. Lots of antique electronics, furniture, costumes, appliances, military and naval uniforms, washing machines. Old photos of interest, and native artwork. Worth the small admission fee. Kids would particularly like the outdoor Ouendat village.

Another not-to-be-missed site! Most of us think we have a good knowledge of this area's history, but you'll be surprised at how much you will learn! The museum presentation of artifacts is amazing, and the authenticity of the Village breathes life into history (something every student should see!).

This museum and its archives is a surprise for its size and scope considering Midland is a relatively small town. It is a spacious facility with a wide range of historical objects and a Huron Indian Village replica one can also visit. It is set at the entrance to iMidland's beautiful Little Lake Park beside the North Simcoe sports and... More

There were lots of interesting items to see, but when we were there, some areas were "under construction" and weather was not ideal for a visit to Ouendat Village. That being said, we DID enjoy our visit and would recommend it to others who enjoy getting a taste of local history. There were some interesting furniture and accessory pieces, plus... More
