People have been meeting here since "time immemorial" or "for more than ten thousand years." The recollections of human history rival the Acropolis. Great setting not only historically but aesthetically. Great connections from the past to the present. Dance group is very good.

If you go to Hazelton, you have to visit the Historical Village. The native peoples are very proud of their heritage and do a wonderful job taking you through the longhouses and explaining their traditions.

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 Their retail practices are outdated and need to represent the artists and artisans...More

Was really looking forward to this museum, but when we arrived were told it was a guided tour only, and no English tours were scheduled. That’s fine, we didn’t need a commentary, but found out we could only view a very limited portion, and all...More
