Huronia Museum and Huron/Ouendat Village

Central Ontario's history, heritage, and culture

The museum consists of the museum building that houses collections and an art gallery, and the Huron Ouendat (Wendat) Village depicting what Huron life was like between AD 1500-1600, just prior to the arrival of Europeans, complete with palisade and a longhouse.

Explore a shaman’s lodge and a wigwam, see carved masks, fish racks, the longhouse, a fur drying rack, and a burial rack.

Created by W. Wilfrid Jury (1890–1981), the village is modelled on his work on the excavation of the pre-contact Forget site near Midland.
