  • My awesome husband and I truly enjoyed this museum. Their collection of Native artifacts and current happenings is rich and inspiring. We especially loved the young people's exhibit on their connection to the land. Beautiful museum and beautiful people!
  • Amazing artifacts . Found out puffins beaks shed. Didn't know that. The section where children come together and tell their feelings of being Canadian was powerful.
