Description

Huronia Museum is located in Midland, Ontario, Canada. It features a replica of a “pre-contact” Huron/Ouendat village, including a lookout tower, wigwam and a full-size longhouse.
The museum also features an exhibit gallery featuring tens of thousands of historic artifacts ranging from photographs, native archaeology and art by members of the Group of Seven, and others. Researchers will also be able to make benefit of our resource library and micro-fiche materials.

Huronia Museum, a not-for-profit organization, was created in 1947 to collect objects of historical significance, which are to be housed and exhibited for the continued education and benefit of the public. Huronia Museum has four primary themes at the foundation of its collections policy. The Museum will collect objects, papers, photographs and ephemera that relate to:

i)Huron & Ojibway Indigenous Peoples
ii)Art, artists and art forms of the Georgian Bay region
iii)Marine History of Georgian Bay
iv)Euro-Canadian and Canadian material culture pertaining to Huronia

“Huronia” is defined as the geographic region inhabited by the Huron/Ouendat people prior to their dispersal in 1649. “Georgian Bay Region” refers to the land and waters of the same geographic area.
