Visit Indigenous Experiences' award-winning National Capital tourism attraction located behind the Canadian Museum of History, near a site once used by Indigenous Peoples as a trading post, and as a place of friendship and celebration.
Set against a spectacular view of the Parliament Buildings and the inspiring architecture of the Canadian Museum of History, Indigenous Experiences brings Indigenous history and culture to life through engaging, authentic and interactive programming for visitors of all ages.
From May through October, groups can book guided tours of a reconstructed village, along with interactive Pow Wow dance performances, craft and music workshops, and traditional storytelling and songs alongside the Ottawa River.
Indigenous Experiences enhances any exploration of Indigenous heritage at the Canadian Museum of History — including popular features such as the stunning Grand Hall which focuses on Indigenous Peoples of the Pacific Coast, the First Peoples Hall which celebrates the history, diversity, creativity and resourcefulness of First Nations, Inuit and Métis, and the Canadian History Hall, where Indigenous stories are integral to a national narrative spanning 15,000 years.
Indigenous Experiences’ talented cultural ambassadors look forward to welcoming you and sharing a small part of their heritage on traditional territory that is now home to the Nation’s Capital.
