  • Great native cultural center with 3 historic tribal houses, including the frog house, recently returned. The guide was there to answer questions to give more context. There are also telescopes for watching eagles.
  • It is a small museum with interesting First Nation exhibits but not the totem poles we were led to believe we're here. Additionally, the price is quite steep for the half hour it takes to cover everything in there.
  • Filled with interesting artifacts and history. Learned quite a bit about the tribes and people of the area. Wish there was more. Staff was lovely. A but chilly!
  • Suprisingly interesting... take the full tour listen and ask questions of the docent , they are very knowledgeable
  • Lots of very old interesting things
