Prince Of Wales Northern Heritage Centre, Yellowknife Reviews
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.
Fun spot to spend the afternoon and learn a lot about northern history and culture. Admission is free, but if you can drop a donation in the bin before you leave. They have few different permanent exhibits on different aspects/regions of the north and there seemed to be at least two different exhibit spaces that get changed out regularly. If you want to learn more about the history and culture of northern Canada definitely check it out.
Covers a bit of geological, anthropological and cultural aspects of a large swath of Canada's North (not just Yellowknife area). It's a large bite, necessarily restricted, and reasonably done. Engaging sections for all ages and a variety of interests. Very family-friendly. Includes free parking, washrooms, coat alcove, and a very nice cafe. There is no gift shop / book shop. Admission is free, but they have a low-key solicitation for donations. Plan for perhaps 2 hours (up to 4 hours if you really want to savour every tidbit).
This museum on Frame Lake is very interesting, and I always enjoy my time there. The exhibits are well maintained, and they are adding things all time to the museum. I would like if there were people available in the exhibits to talk to you more in depth the different subjects.
Really neat exhibits, and great value, I mean it’s free??? I’ve never seen so much indigenous culture represented all in one place and in a way that isn’t just historical but shows ways of life still practiced in northern Canada! A great learning experience for me.
