Inspirational inspiring place Very moving experience of true accounts in history Will never forget Most moving was the actual graves of two of the martyrs inside the Church they used. Also the small rooms with very bare basics the missionaries stayed in and the room where they cared for the sick and dying Indians

I was very pleased to be shown this attraction as it might not have made a list for visiting in the area. A very good recreation of a French Missionary Mission and their association with the Wenday (Huron) people. There are many buildings recreated and a very interesting lock waterway system built in. The period dressed staff perform many exhibitions... More

A great historical site with many knowledgeable staff to answer your questions. The only thing I didn't like was the native woman in the longhouse made us feel as if we were interrupting her personal conversation. Other than that, everyone was approachable.

Although a reconstruction of the 17th century settlement by Jesuits Brébeuf and Lalemant, it is built on the grounds of the original fort. The original foundations of two of the buildings are displayed. They did a fantastic job reconstructing the buildings that had been in place. When you enter the chapel, be prepared: the GRAVES of Brébeuf and Lalemant are... More

Visited on a Sunday and the crowds were light. The admission was $12 per adult but take a look for a free kids admission in the travel books. The staff are in historic costumes telling you the way things were done in the Jesuit times. There are bracelet making, quill writing, and clay okie stations to keep the kids entertained.... More

After reading so many reviews stating how this venue was superior to the one at Discovery Harbour, I was quite disappointed. (Perhaps the individual attention we received from the one tour guide at DH just set us up for disappointment.) Few staff on site. Very little description on the map of what each building was. Had I known, I would... More

Young children love the making of crafts and get splashed by the boat demonstration. Older children love the cultural experience.
