Nice little museum that showcases the local history and does a passable job of including some native Canadian elements.

We loved our visit, and found the museum a great starting point for our historical tour of the region. The village was a little run down, but seeing past the superficial, the information was interesting and informative, especially in the museum.

The museum was very run down, especially the Huronian Village. No guided tours. We think the Huronians deserve better. One positive aspect, they have a little leaflet in different languages, e.g. English,German, French

The Wendat village is interesting and worth a visit if you're nearby ($12 entry), but it is looking rather tired and neglected. We were the only people there when we visited, as it is off-season, and I gather that they have staff in dress during...More
