👋SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT! After more than a decade, the Huron-Wendat Museum is saying goodbye to its exhibition "Territories, Memories, Knowledge". Take advantage of a 25% discount on the museum's admission price while we work on the redesign of this permanent exhibition room, the new version of which will be released in June 2024. In the meantime, we are offering a revisited exhibition on these themes of territories, memories and knowledge that takes place at Tsawenhohi House all winter and spring! The history of a culture that is still alive and objects imbued with a very tangible memory: that is what visitors are invited to discover in the Huron-Wendat Museum's permanent exhibition.

This interactive exhibit showcases a collection of rare objects that immerses you in the heart of the Huron-Wendat culture and explores the themes of territory, memory, and knowledge.

The journey through history begins with a mural retelling the creation of the world. Behind the forest that welcomes visitors, the history of the Nation is told with display cases arranged in a large circle. These display cases present and explain the meaning of the objects they protect/house, guiding us on the path of knowledge. The multimedia environment above the large circle plunges the visitor into a poetic vision of the natural universe that nourishes and stimulates the imagination. The objects come to life.

In anticipation of the opening of its new permanent exhibition, the Huron-Wendat Museum offers a new way to discover its former permanent exhibit. The most significant artifacts have been selected to enable visitors to discover the history of the Huron-Wendat people, from the creation of the world to the present day. These objects are presented in a heritage building that once housed several of the nation’s Grand Chiefs, the Tsawenhohi House. Interactive elements enhance the visit.

Welcome to our home!
