Inaugurated in 2008, the Huron-Wendat Museum is a national institution of the Huron-Wendat people that oversees the conservation and presentation of their heritage.
Through its permanent exhibition “Territories, Memories, Knowledge”, its temporary exhibitions schedule, activities and thematic workshops, the museum fulfills its mandate of teaching and disseminating knowledge of the history, the culture, and the arts of the Huron-Wendat people, as well as of other First Nations. For visitors, the museum is also the gateway to the interpretation of other heritage sites in Wendake, including the Notre-Dame-de-Lorette Church, the Kabir Kouba waterfall, and the Tsawenhohi House. Visit their website to discover the various visits, activities or workshops available.
Don’t forget to end your visit to the Museum by taking a break in our giftshop called Awen’ (water), which offers an impressive range of authentic products for you to immerse yourself in the creek of Huron-Wendat and other First Nations knowledge and skills.
Discover a magnificent selection of arts and crafts: moccasins, necklaces, pottery and others, traditional knowledge is in the spotlight, and you are sure to find what you are looking for. And that’s not to mention the books on the history, the local flora and cuisine, the Huron-Wendat and First Nations cultures and traditions, the exhibition catalogues and even some products bearing the Museum’s logo. There’s something for everyone!
