Where are we going today?

The Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre collection includes paintings, sculptures, clothing, hunting and working tools, geological samples and many other items illustrating the history of the NWT.

Collections are rotated in and out of storage, so no two trips will be the same. A new permanent element is the traditional garment display, utilising muskrats, caribou, and polar bears!

Tours are available, upon request, to school groups, out of town visitors and guests.

    Worth the visit. Great exhibits on NWT wildlife and history, as well as great art displays.

    A very good museum that helps you learn about the arts, culture and history of the Northwest Territories. Free too!

    The only negative thing I can say about it is that it is only open between Monday and Friday, and only between 11:30 and 2pm. But that doesn't take away from the quality of the food.
