  • Excellent tour that speaks about the building design and how it ties into the indigenous peoples of NWT. Amazing to learn that a government body in Canada is built around its people and respect for its indigenous peoples and their wisdom. This is a beautiful building with brilliant architectural design that weaves in different aspects of 11 different nations and languages of NWT. Highly recommended!
  • The security guy do the introduction and he’s really nice! Also the Christmas atmosphere and setting are great.
  • Dont forget to go inside the hall and take sime photos. Right stairs up.
