I thought this was fantastic. Building was stunning, exhibits including long boats, totem poles were great and the tour guides were fantastic. They were keen to point out this was a cultural centre and not a museum and think thats relevant.
My wife understands some of the many challenges First Nations have to go through, how families and children were treated, family's torn apart etc years ago. This was ignored and not touched on. I asked one of the guides in-directly and he skirted around the issue.
Worth waiting for a tour. You get so much extra info.
But don't let that detract, go there with an open mind. They are presenting their culture in a positive way and if more people understand their culture a little more after a visit, that can only be a good thing
They have a good shop and cafe on site downstairs, which I believe is external of the paid fee area.
