The museum is a "must see" for it displays Nisga'a history and memorabilia that is so rich in their traditions. The guided tour makes the displays come alive as the origin and significance of the exhibits in Nisga'a culture and history is enthusiastically explained.

Wonderful content in an incredible building. The displays are most interesting and well presented with background information. Good literature in the gift shop. We recommend calling the museum to confirm hours for the day you want to visit.

For best information about the Nisgaa's history you need to take a conducted tour. In union an absolute must do is driving on the Nisgaa's Highway up to Gingolx. The tour is crossing a bear sanctuary in which the 'Spirit Bear' lives too. I Gingolx...More

Reviewed this already with my Nisga'a Memorial Lava Beds review. Really good Museum, but it needs labels on its exhibits. Still worth it.
