This museum was a surprising gem, like so many things in the North. I went to look at carvings because I heard they have good prices there. I bought two small pieces from their very, very large selection of items for sale.
Most interesting, however, were the displays, which range from contemporary photography exhibits to an impressive array of large carvings on the second floor. There are photo albums that convey an amazing sense of life in Nunavut through time. There is a display related to the residential school system and the healing that local people have been undertaking. It was powerful to realize the vibrancy of arts and culture that exists still despite the government's harsh efforts to suppress Inuit language and culture.
While the museum is quite small in size, it packs a big punch. It is well worth visiting if you have any interest in history, local art and culture.
