Prince Of Wales Northern Heritage Centre, Yellowknife Reviews
For it's size and location this museum is very impressive. Exhibits are pretty comprehensive on life in the North West Territories, and include both indigenous groups and settlers from outside. The dioramas in the galleries are very detailed and informative. It's not too big so only will take you an hour or two, but well worth your time in Yellowknife!
Super interesting Museum and Cultural Center! Our guide was absolutely fantastic, he was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. There's a whole range of really well curated exhibits here. There are sections on the history of the area, the geopolitical importance of the location, the various types of wildlife, and a section for art exhibited by locals. There is also a great cafe in the building as well as document archives. Absolutely a must see if you're visiting Yellowknife!
This is a great museum for everything northern. The displays are fantastic and have good write ups and stories. If you are looking to learn more about the northern way of life then this is a great starting place.
A must-see for visitors to the area - especially those new to the north. The displays are high quality and the museum is very well laid out.
We went to the museum to jump start our visit to Yellowknife. We were so please with all the history packed in this 2 stories building,that we made a point to come back on a different day to finish our tour. To complete the visit,we sat at the cafe to take it all in! Great menu, friendly service. Many thanks to the tour guide. Glad we made it part of our visit to Yellowknife.
