  • Beautiful. So worthwile. Also a great place for photo-ops
  • This place isn't big, but the exhibits are pretty nice. I took the tour and without that I think I wouldn't have understood much. The book store is GREAT. Lots of BC native history there and artifacts and art and souvenirs. One of the better places in Prince Rupert.
  • A small museum that is worth a visit if you are in the area. Exhibits talk about early inhabitants of the town and the First Nations before them.
  • 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!
  • Highly recommend. Affordable.
