Inaugurated in 2008, the Huron-Wendat Museum is an institution created to protect and promote the heritage of the Huron-Wendat people. With a permanent exhibit “Territories, Memories, Knowledge”, an ongoing program of temporary exhibits, and numerous activities and themed workshops, the museum carries out its mandate to teach and popularize the history, culture and art of the Huron-Wendat people and of others First Nations. The museum is also a gateway for visitors, leading to Wendake’s numerous heritage sites such as Notre-Dame-de-Lorette church, the Kabir Kouba waterfall, the Tsawenhohi house and the Ekionkiestha’ national longhouse.
The museum boutique offers visitors a piece of history in the form of aboriginal works of art and exhibitions catalogs, along with souvenirs bearing the museum logo.
Located right by the Akiawenrahk’ river, under the same roof as the Hôtel-Musée Premières Nations and La Traite Restaurant, the museum is surrounded by thematic gardens which created an enchanting setting.
