Owner description: The Northern Frontier Visitor Center as of Oct. 01st 2017 - is no longer providing Visitor Services.
Reviewed 29 July 2014

I would give the center itself 4 stars, good exhibits, solid staff, but the fact that they have 10 bicycles for use by anyone with an out of town id pushes them up to a 5. The bikes were one speed cruisers with a basket on the front. They were an excellent vehicle to see the nooks and crannies of Yellowknife. And the visitor center exhibits provided good background for understanding the town.

As per the title, we walked in to find the souvenirs and only noticed the information about Yellowknife in the background. The staff were somewhat helpful when asked questions.

Taylor and Timothy were extra friendly, and explained all of the key sites within YK. Without their help, I may have missed certain destinations.
