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

Great Museum with a lot of history. Spend a whole day here & at Little Lake Park just beside it! Hard to believe that in this small place packs a big punch!

A counterpart of Ste-Marie Among The Hurons is the Huronia Museum, which features reconstructions of First Nations buildings such as a sweat lodge and a long house. Inside the main building there's a museum of First Nation artefacts, along with a reconstruction of a general store. And lots more. The town of Midland is fortunate to have so much history,... More
