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.

We arrived after hours and peeked through the traditional fencing. It's a beautiful, beautiful place on the traditional territory of the Ouendat.

We visited in September and were given a cheap printed guide sheet and the key to the outside display. Inside the art section was poorly lit and the artefacts section drab. The historical content is good. Outside is well laid out and informative but it looks neglected. It has some good stuff but needs a good Spring clean with modern... More

I found Huronia Village such an authentic experience to visit. Great for kids or anyone interested in how our Native First Nations lived in the early days with the first Europeans

Some very interesting aboriginal and other local artifacts objects and art. Not very well maintained, uncared for museum. Lights out on some displays, signage blocking a display or one upside down, dust on items,
