This place is worth a visit. Very nice totem poles and long houses. There is a little gift shop and it's very pleasant to walk around the area. We weren't able to take one of the tours of the long house but I'm sure it would be worthwhile if you have the time.

This is an Outstanding Museum - not to be missed. It is composed of a number of long houses and put together by the local tribe over a number of decades. The long houses are built and decorated in the long standing tradition of the culture. The insides are fashioned just as they would have been hundreds of years ago. You have to take the tour to see inside the buildings and they will not take a tour around until there are at least 5 people, but we did not have to wait long until we had a group of 8. The tour guide gives a very good presentation in each long house about what it was for, tribal structure of families and chiefs and then explains the displays around the long house. She very willing to answer questions and provide clarifications. I thoroughly enjoyed our visit here.

We went with great anticipation to get a tour which was scheduled by them at 1:00 (11, 1, and 3 for the day). Got there early at 12:30 and were told they don’t give tours for less than four people and they only wait five minutes past the tour time. At 1:10 no more people, no tour. Walked to the parking lot and ran into two more people and at 1:17 we four asked for a tour. They said it was too late and they wouldn’t sell us a tour. Saw at least three people in the area behind the desk with other excuses too. Ridiculous so we all left very disappointed after traveling a long way. Next scheduled was 3:00 and they claimed they didn’t want to interfere with that tour, but this place is very small and not that much here on the grounds without a tour. Hope they are more interested in having their scheduled tours if you go out of your way to come.

So sad to find Ksan totally out of the tourism picture these days. Mandatory guided tours every 2 hrs of 3 remaining reconstructed long houses (of 6-7 total). When we arrived 15 mins late, told to come back in 2 hrs!! Gift shop meandering not interesting at all. Dancers on Wed nights were nice but collection of donations was poorly done, calling out amounts of each donator - why ? Then stopped show to count up the total. Ouch !

Ksan campsite incl host manager was excellent as was nearby totem rich villages visited by Emily Cart. Old Hazelton esp the library museum was also tops.

We visited all the Carr sites incl the spectacular museum at Laxgalts'ap where the free guide was wonderful. The 2000 deaths around 1780 in the Nisga'a river valley due to lava spewing from a volcanic cone only 35 or so meters high was totally surprising to learn. A nearby campsite and guided tour was excellent.

Lots to see and learn but give Ksan a miss.

at the confluence of Wedzin Kwe (Bulkley) and Skeena rivers, the new trails are awesome to walk along the gorgeous rivers. The Museum is pretty awesome too, and the campsite is my go to walking place! a beauty of a Place \O/

First, you must take the tour. It’s $15 with reduced rates for seniors & youth. The guide will unlock 3 of The longhouses where each has different artifacts from the culture. This whole village is a recreation of what a village would have looked like so with funding and the return of items from museums around the world, the displays are first rate. The guide hands you various items to hold, making this a touch & feel experience. Definitely this type of museum helps close cultural gaps. Outside, there are tables to enjoy the view. Enjoyable experience for all ages.

The displays in the longhouses were excellent and the young man who did our tour was great. He is very passionate about his culture and it came through in his tour. It was so nice to learn about the culture and hear about his personal experiences. He was great at answering questions. Highly recommend stopping in and doing the tour (about an hour). The gift shop is nice too. Note that if you don’t do the tour then there is not too much to see as you can’t access the inside of the longhouses. The cost of the tour and the hour spent are well worth it though.

We went to the little store. And we asked about the buildings. They said there was a self guided tour or a guided tour we wanted to do a self guided tour as we enjoy taking our time. We were a little disappointed as you can not go into the buildings on a self guided tour which they did not tell us. So we didn't see anything but the beautiful outside of the buildings. The store was beautiful though.

This was amazing. We were shown how a feast is done and what it means. We paid by donating into the feast bowl while dancing to the beat of the drums. I would see this over and over. At the end we were gifted a print which is now framed and hanging in my home.
