It wasn't my first time in Prince Rupert. This time, I was with friends in tow, so I took them to the museum. The staff are unfriendly, cool, and distant. Please make this important museum a warmer, more welcoming experience. Art work is awesome!

This is an amazing museum. Not your normal. The written history and artifacts contained on display are magnificent. One can spend hours here. My 7 year old grandson was really intrigued by the exhibits. Easy access.

What a great museum. It has wonderful First Nation art and artifacts along with a good history of both First Nations and Europeans in Prince Rupert. All with spectacular views. Not to be missed.

As a collector for many years and a former resident of Prince Rupert, the native art collection at the museum is outstanding, with many pieces rivalling those of the BC museum of Anthropology. A do not miss for lovers of northwest art and history.
