  • 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.
