If you're looking for a 'quick' activity I would highly recommend coming to this museum. It was very informative of the history and traditions of NWT and supplied a lot of artifacts! It took me about an hour to walk around at my own pace - If there was one complaint it would be that it's too small and should expand! The staff were very friendly and helpful when I asked questions and the exhibits were lovely. Would come back again!
Great museum! It's very informative of the NWT history and wildlife education. It took us an hour to walk through the whole museum. Great place to spend time here during the day!
A fantastic experience. Great displays and explanations. Very engaging and entertaining! Don't forget to leave a donation ~
Our guy Jean was fantastic. As an archaeologist he did a great job guiding our group around and was well informed on everything in the museum.
Very insightful and educational exhibit. It is donation based making public access to it easy. My only complaint was how the topic of residential schools was glossed over with this panel (shown). The motive of this exhibit is to display indigenous life, culture, and history in this region. This cannot be accomplished without acknowledging the destructive impact of residential schools on these people. Many visitors to Canada do not know our dark history and I hope that one day it will become easily accessible public information.
