  • 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.
  • Wonderful place to visit,the exhibition of native American art and history are real nice but they should be dusting off the exhibition boxes...

  • Good little museum with some history of prince rupert and local first nations of the area.
