  • The gift shop is worthwhile going to if only to view the art. Lots of gift options for all budgets. I have this beautiful bowl, which was a gift to me, from the gift shop...lot's of neat gifts and great artwork too.
  • First time actually going in. Originally went in cause my son loves to drum. They had an interactive area for kids which any kids would love. Displays and staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. Learned a bit and got to meet some of the locals which is always fun. Thanks for being such wonderful hosts.
  • I really enjoy visiting. I learn something new every time I go. Take the time to make something from cedar. The gift shop has some really unique items. Park in the Village parking lot and walk. There is limited parking.
  • I really enjoyed my time here. I learned a lot about the local first Nations groups and their culture. I was happy to support an organization that offers cultural and language learning in this community.
  • Beautiful spot with wonderful guides. Thanks Thomas!
