Built in 2008, the Hôtel-Musée Premières Nations (HMPN) offers an exceptional concept inspired by First Nations culture and its relationship with the rest of the world: nature, spirituality and mythology. This boutique hotel features 79 rooms and suites, as well as several function rooms that can accommodate over 200 people. It’s the ideal place to celebrate weddings, conventions and special events in an authentic natural setting. Seven of Quebec’s eleven Nations are represented on staff. The Hôtel-Musée Premières Nations is 100% First Nations-owned.

In addition to offering 4-star service, you can enjoy innovative cuisine in its restaurant, featuring hunting, fishing and gathering products and herbs from the boreal forest, as well as First Nations-inspired dishes created by Michelin-starred chef Marc de Passorio. La Traite invites you to come and enjoy a gastronomic experience that will introduce your senses to unique textures and flavours.

The hotel is also home to the Huron-Wendat Museum, which presents all facets of Huron-Wendat culture through its permanent exhibition Territoires, Mémoires, Savoirs. You can also discover the cultures of other nations through temporary exhibitions, or learn more about Huron-Wendat culture in the traditional Ekionkiestha longhouse.

The Hôtel-Musée Premières Nations is in the process of completing a $13 million rejuvenation, including the construction of a new wing, the creation of 24 rooms and suites, modernization of the three-storey glass roof overlooking the Akiawenrahk River, new meeting rooms, modernization of the exterior landscaping and the La Traite restaurant. Rooms and suites also feature new decor and furnishings to reflect their elegant, traditional character.

A visit to the Hôtel-Musée Premières Nations is a voyage of discovery, a unique experience in an inspiring environment to share the history and modernity of the First Nations. It’s a refined, authentic, gastronomic and immersive getaway in the heart of a thousand-year-old aboriginal territory rich in cultural traditions, creating a timeless union between

the roots of the past and the attractions of the present.

At the heart of the Hôtel-Musée Premières Nations, you’ll be spoilt for choice with a selection of enchanting venues for your special event.

  • The Huron-Wendat Museum’s terrace offers a magnificent natural setting, bordered by forest and a small body of water along the river. This space lends itself perfectly to cocktails or ceremonies, offering a peaceful and immersive atmosphere.
  • Restaurant La Traite also boasts a picturesque terrace, nestled close to the forest and river. This enchanting location is ideal for hosting your ceremony, adding a touch of nature to your special day.
  • For unique photos, we recommend the palisades of the longhouse. This outdoor space offers an authentic and original setting, capturing the essence of First Nations history and culture.
  • If you prefer an indoor option with a panoramic view, the foyer of the rooms, located on the second floor of the Hôtel-Musée, is entirely glassed-in. It’s the ideal place to hold your cocktail party or ceremony while enjoying the natural beauty of the surroundings.
  • The Huron-Wendat Museum, adjacent to the Hôtel-Musée, is also at your disposal. Ideal for cocktails, you’ll be able to project photos onto three giant screens, adding a personalized touch to your evening.
  • The wooded area near the Tsawenhohi ancestral home is another charming outdoor option, located just a few steps away. This space offers an intimate, natural setting for photos or a small cocktail party in a small circle.
  • If you’d like to use the Akiawenhrahk’ river as a natural backdrop for your photos, its banks offer a simply enchanting setting.
  • Finally, for your wedding reception, the ballroom (Salle Wendake) can accommodate up to 150 guests in a round-table format. You’ll have the freedom to add a personal touch by calling on the services of a decorator of your choice.
