Visitors can learn about prehistoric Tsimshian archaeological finds and explore the history of the First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples in the six-story Grand Hall. The 2,000 objects in the First Nations collection include one of the oldest pieces depicting a human face. Their Canadian Children’s Museum offers interactive exhibits designed for play to promote cultural awareness. One Sunday each month features special family-focused activities.
