There is some stuff in the museum. There is no description of that they are or used for. There was a bunch of mask but not sure what they use them for or if they are just for display to fill a spot. . Beautiful building.

We wanted to visit the museum so we planned a stop in Terrace. It was a 2 hour drive but definitely worth it! The mountain scenery was spectacular plus passing through the lava beds made for an interesting drive. The museum architecture and collection did not disappoint. I gained an appreciation of the history of the Nisga'a and a better... More

Trip Advisor will NOT accept the location of this museum in its options. Please note that the Museum is located in Greenville (also known as Laxgalts'ap) which is about 70 km from New Aiyansh (Gitlaxt'aamiks in the Nisga's language). The Museum is very unique and well worth the drive. The museum holds a phenomenal collection of amazing old masks, bentwood... More

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.

Have heard lovely things about this museum so we had to stop. Travelling with another family we pulled into the parking lot thinking it was closed as there was no one or any vehicles in sight. Glad we checked the door and found them open. Upon entering we found and greeted two young employees. One was obviously new and one... More

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 take a meal in Bonnie's Restaurant 'Sea food and eat it' (first or second way... 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.
