This place not only has an interesting museum with quaint and fascinating artifacts, but also gets you right into the Indian history and culture. They have school programs if you're a teacher like me needing ideas! The best part - there's a realistic Indian village on site. They have a good guide map as well as signs in the village... More

Great stop if you are passing through the area. The village was really neat to walk through although I would have loved to have had a guide or live person inside to share some information above what was posted on the boards. Some interesting artifacts inside the museum as well!

Cool place. I learned a lot about the heron culture. Really liked wig wam and tobacco information.cool that they showed respect to animals. They had a lot of cool customs. Lots of different tribes lived together in peace.

liked the indoor museum section better than the outdoor village. Outdoor village was self guided and I felt it could have used better signage to describe the sites. Indoor was quite interesting, especially the maritime section of photographs and ship models

We love local history museums like this. I would recommend this museum to get some background about the history of the Midland area.

So glad we visited. Wondered at first if it would be similar to St-Marie among the Hurons, but this was quite different - the village of the people of the land, not the missionaries! Could wander through the village seeing how the people lived and imagine how it would have been for them living this way, all set up as... More

We visited as part of a seniors’ group outing and so had a guided tour of the Ouendat Village and a special white gloves activity in the museum. The recreated Indian encampment is showing signs of struggling to maintain appearances, likely a funding issue, but still interesting. The museum is a real find with a small art gallery which includes... More

The museum and village was not long open for the summer season when we visited but the village was very interesting, especially the long house and shelters. A good overview on how the 1st nation people lived all these years ago. The internal museum was very good and had many interesting items to view and was well laid out. Well... More

Though in a sense this museum and outdoor village is a bit rundown, it also kind of fits with the aura of a museum dealing with local history. Compared to the nearby Ste. Marie Among the Hurons, this location has a lot less flash, but it deals with the local history as told through the eyes of the Native Americans... More
