  • Our guide from the clan of wolves, brought us a nation rich past of peace, hunting and agriculture, unsuspected by ourselves, poor white men. We walked in the footsteps of our guide and learned the sad end of his membership to the Wendat nation. He is the last of the seventh generation to be able to bear this title, his two sons will not honor, because the white man to decided that it would be so... We were impressed by their ability to build these longhouses, the techniques of smoking meat and fish, canoe making, of the sauna and the medicine man's House. Until the arrival of the first settlers this nation lived in happiness with nature, since, even nature theirs more... to meditate.

  • Site reconstructed with various construction including a long House, which to address different themes every time. The guides are very good, know what they are talking about, and take the time to answer your questions. Needed liquor with the Museum, this site is more interesting thanks to the guides

  • Really interesting place. We weren't able to take a guided tour as there were none being offered in English that day. The fee was the same, which was a bit odd, but we enjoyed our visit none the less, and definitely learned a lot. Our kids really enjoyed the gift shop, and the staff there were very friendly, as was the woman working at the admission counter.
  • Informative and interesting place to visit. Just wish we could have spent longer!
  • Great place great people , must to see when you visit Quebec City
  • Great introduction to tribal experience food good too
  • We had a great time visiting here. Highly recommend the Wendake traditional dances. It begins with a ceremonial Smudge and includes a dance that everyone participates in. I also got to smoke the peace pipe! One of the dancers came and played with our daughter after the performance. It is so nice to see indigenous youth with a positive outlet for practicing their traditions and customs.
