  • Very interesting museum. Lots of interesting displays showing ancient, recent and current history. Some videos showing storytellers and other Indigenous people talking about their history...

  • Second visit for me, a self guided small tour. This museum has lifelike exhibits and depictions of how First Nations folk lived and worked in centuries gone by. It includes many original tools...

  • Fantastic little museum. A good amount of artifacts and displays with tons of info for the price. They present interesting and very relevant historical information without being stuffy about it. Some display figures are wearing masks and one is holding a cell phone. They strike a great balance between being educational, informative, and honest about hard truths while still having fun.
  • The exhibits / artifacts are very nice, very informative. It is a little limited though, it's a pretty quick walk through but it is priced accordingly. The store has very good quality, Canadian made art pieces at different price points, we were able to get cool little things for the whole family for a reasonable amount.
