  • portable stools are great idea. Indigenous artifact labels are not educational and only relevant to a curator. Gallery guide is in book format only and would be more useful if snippets easily...

  • I particularly enjoyed the Riopele exhibition which I think is there until Feb 2022. Highly recommend.

  • Beautiful facility celebrating the indigenous arts and culture for BC. Nice collection, worth the tour for further insight into some of the collections. But if you are into the incredible architecture, then this is a must see. A walk around the outside before venturing indoors is recommended. The galleries are spacious and well designed. Certainly a stunner with the facility alone.
  • Very charming and beautiful museum that celebrates indigenous arts and culture, and features amazing works of local artists. Definitely doesn’t have a “wow” factor like museums in bigger cities, but if you are interested and curious about the local art scenes, it’s worth it to check it out. Aside from the artworks, the museum features impressive architectural work and a blend of indoor-outdoor design.
