  • incredibly detailed museum of two fascinating living cultural heritages. it's got handmade traditional regalia, rope making techniques, multiple types of canoes and spirit poles and more. the cafe has some delicious snacks, and the store is full of unique designs for their goods. staff is super friendly, patient, and very proud to explain any questions you might have about their history and cultures. perhaps the only downside is that the cafe closes early, so be sure to get there earlier in the day if you want to treat yourself!
  • Wonderful experience, beautiful song, stories and interactive elements. Highly recommend the tour and talking with the people working there. We were gifted the story of one young man's personal history with the beautifully created doors to the space.
