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.

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

We only visited the outdoor village as the museum was off limits due to flooding. The admission fee was reduced (5 dollars for adults), but the visit was worth it as a means to understand about how the native people lived. Liked the long house. My daughter liked the corn grinding shack. Some of the exhibits are in need of... More

We arrived after hours and peeked through the traditional fencing. It's a beautiful, beautiful place on the traditional territory of the Ouendat. It's really too bad that the MASSIVE YMCA next door completely destroyed a grave site on this land... shame on the Midland Council for not strictly enforcing archaeological excavations prior to construction!
