  • Extremely neat and well organized museum. It will introduct you into the history and the reality of this rugged country, moulded by the original people and Europeans.
  • Could learn more about nature and culture of yellowknife. The experience zone for children was also great. Worthy place to donate!
  • Small but very well done and professional. I learned a lot about the art, culture, wildlife, and histories of the northern territories and its people. I highly recommend this museum.
  • Very interesting exhibits and didn't take all day to go through. And it's free! Would definitely check it out if it's your first time to Yellowknife
  • Nice staff and nice place. Exhibits are a bit boring and political.
