Very interesting museum with very nice displays and artifacts related to the area. There are many nautical artifacts and photographs which reflect the shipping industries and were neat to see. There were also some exquisite Victorian area gowns that were the finest we have ever seen. The outdoor village replica was very nice to walk through but it was too bad there were no interpreters there. Highly recommended!

My title says it all here as it is their way of thanking us for our service. small await time as they limit the # of people touring this historic place due to the cOVIS-19 situation. It is a self guided tour and just follow the arrows to do the short tour. I like history and of the opinion that our First Nations people have a lot to teach us from their simple way of life. There was a small group visiting from China and gave them a brief overview of Canadian history. They appeared interested in what I told them and thanked me for this useful information.

Very interesting to see the village but it is quite small. The museum has a wide range of exhibits also covering pioneer times in the area. There are detailed descriptions that can take time to read and are very interesting, but someone just browsing would finish quite quickly.

It’s a fascinating place, a living museum. Very informative story boards, and polite, helpful and knowledgable staff.

The museum is fairly crowded and has a lot of stuff that appears to have been donated, While much of it was interesting the collection could do with curation. The village had good explanatory plaques but was limited when we visited.

I have never left a museum with more questions than answers but here we are. I went to the museum as a child and had fond memories of it in the 1980s unfortunately whoever is in charge has let this place get really run down. The Ouendat village replica is falling apart. Modern Tupperware containers and plastic bins were left in the longhouse, garbage was strewn around inside the pole stacks, the grass wasn't cut or maintained. The Tupperware seemed to contain information for kids but it totally ruined the illusion of the place. The bins and binders left in the longhouse were just lazy. There were other modern implements like wheelbarrows and hoses in a room that was wide open for public viewing. Just a complete lack of regard for the history and the illusion. Another large part of the village was walled off and filled with old equipment and trash. Just brutal.

Inside the museum was just as bad. The displays were packed so closely together it felt more like a warehouse than a museum. One room, a replica of an early general store, was well done . . . what happened to the rest of the place? There was a display about ships that talked about local shipbuilding but nowhere was this explained. Was there a ship works in Midland? Who knows?

In the art gallery were multiple paintings by AY JACKSON! What?! you have actual group of seven paintings just out in the open at eye level where anyone can touch them?

In the indigenous art gallery, there was a curling stone, just sitting there in the middle of the room . . . for no reason. There were dozens of old conference chairs stacked in an area that seemed to be for kids ... safety first. smh

I really can't stress how disappointing and awful this museum visit was. The only staff seemed busy and laughing in the office at the front of the museum. Probably laughing about how awful a waste of money we were making! The cost to visit all of this wonderment? $12 per adult and $7.50 per kid! Most local museums run on donations! Save yourself! Do not go here. Go to Sainte Marie Among the Hurons or the SS Keewatin, both are nearby and much better kept.
Advice to the museum... sell your paintings and put money into museum upkeep and modernization.

The kids really enjoyed the hands on parts like writing with a pen and creating clay figurines. The kids that served as period pieces were very knowledgable and sweet, we really enjoyed interacting with them

Wat een charmant museumpje vol verrassingen! Om te beginnen het wetenschappelijk gereconstrueerde dorp van de Ouendat, die hier lang voor de komst van de Europeanen eeuwenlang leefden. Schitterend longhouse onder andere. In het museum werden wij het meest geraakt door een kamer met herinneringen aan de gesneuvelde jongens uit deze streek, in WO I en WO II. Verder krijg je een indruk van de voorwerpen uit het dagelijks leven van de immigranten. Heel veel voorwerpen. Bij elk voorwerp stel ik me voor hoe iemand dat na lang sparen kocht, hoe er lang van gehouden is, en hoe het op een dag in onbruik raakte. Zalen vol verhalen.

Das Midland Huronia Museum hat im Freien eine Indianer-Siedlung auf engem Raum nachgebaut. Es ist erstaunlich, wie diese Leute damals auf kleinstem Raum ihr Leben organisierten.

Closed for the season, the staff were preparing for an event and allowed us in to have a look around.
The management and team were extremely friendly and welcoming - and very informative. Even though they were busy, they took the time to stop and chat. The shop was very well stocked with fascinating books and references on the local region.
The museum is showing some signs of wear and tear - but the collection inside tells a great story about Midland. This is why it is such a great community museum, as it so obviously displays local history and artifacts.
We will definitely return during the summer season in order to see the reconstruction of a Huron/Ouendat village.
