Museum of Northern British Columbia

Recommended
The museum is particularly noteworthy for its outstanding collection of 8000 objects from ethnic groups of the northwestern coast (Tsimshian and Haïda essentially). Don't miss the mourning gown or the handsome carved bear, two unique Tsimshian funerary artefacts. The museum building itself, constructed out of massive red cedar timber, is impressive. At the sculpture workshop visitors can watch native First Nations craftspeople demonstrate their talents.
