Powwow Country: Museum of Northern British Columbia, Prince Rupert
Museum of Northern British Columbia, Prince Rupert
Located on the waterfront in downtown Prince Rupert, the Museum of Northern British Columbia, styled after a Northwest coast longhouse, displays a large collection of artifacts of the First Nations who have lived in this area for over 10,000 years. Devoted to Indian culture of the Pacific coast, the museum provides the opportunity to observe Tsimshian, Haida, Nisga’a carvers at work in its carving shed. Also on display outside the museum is a traditional Skeena fishing boat. Original masks by local and regional artists, carvings in argillite and wood, woven cedar bark and spruce root baskets and gold and silver jewellery are sold in the museum gift shop. The museum gift shop also houses an extensive collection of books on Northwest coast art, culture and natural history. From May to September there are daily tours, performances of the Prince Rupert Story: An Evening of Drama and the Heritage and Totem Pole walking tours all bring Northwest coastal history to life.
