An excellent introduction to Haida history and culture, inside & out. Great little cafe for lunch & giftshop. Only complaint: the "no photos" rule in museum area :-(

If you are visiting the Haida Gwaii, a visit to this Heritage Centre is an absolute must. The exhibits are both informative and moving and the setting is stunning.. You will learn a great deal about the Haida Nation and the Haida Gwaii.

It's because some flashes on cameras are too bright and can cause damage to the artifacts.
