Nice little museum - overview of the history of the area - and a lovely gift shop! Won’t take too much of your time, and worth a visit! :)

A small but engaging collection of artifacts and stories about founding residents. I enjoyed my time in the museum but it does not take a lot of time. It's quite small. Admission is by donation.

If you have an hour or so to spend, taking your reading glasses because there is so much to read! The staff at the front were very friendly too.

A great little gem in downtown Port Hardy. The curator Jane does a great job of finding local history for her displays which are frequently changing. They also have great gifts if you are looking for something unique to take with you.

This museum is small and it's by donation rather than a charge. We found it really interesting . Visited on a rainy afternoon and chatted to a lovely lady about the area for ages.
