Excellent place, right beside the RV park! Would be nice if long houses could be viewed outside of tours, even if this meant a ticket charge:)

This reproduction of a traditional Village is extremely well done. To get the best out of this site we paid for the guided tour. This was really worth the $10 we paid. Included in the tour is entrance to the 3 long houses which displayed...More

We were driving from Prince Rupert to Burns Lake. There are not many places worth stopping along the Yellowhead Highway. The drive into the village/town was a unique experience as you need to first drive along a real high one-lane suspension bridge. The museum is...More

I attended the Carving School at Ksan back in the 1970's. Since those days the place has fallen into disrepair. The retail shop continues to sell non Indigenous artworks and tourist junk. Their retail practices are outdated and need to represent the artists and artisans...More

We visited the village while on our way back from Prince Rupert. It was a beautiful fall day. Our previous visit here was some 40 years ago. Much upgrading. We took the guided tour. A must. My wife bought some beautiful local jewelry.
