We visited while a cultural event was being hosted at the centre. It was very busy and offered an array of performances and demonstrations as well as opportunity to purchase authentic indigenous arts and crafts.

When we stopped here, we had imagined that there would be an extensive museum and gift shop in the facility. That is not the case, yet our visit was interesting and informative in a welcoming and comfortable gathering space. There was an exhibit about subsistence...More

This venue hosts a variety of activities, from art exhibits to classes and interactive performances. Just 2 blocks from the center of downtown, and right on the Yukon River. Plus, it’s a gorgeous building - Kudos to the designers and builder.

Expected much more from this cultural center. Our hostess was not from the area, which was disappointing. Not much to see and would not waste my time to go there again. Much, much better cultural places to see/visit in Teslin and Haines Junction.

This is right beside the library. There is some beautiful First Nations art on display and I did a guided tour. There's no giftshop or coffeeshop, so if there's nothing going on, there's nothing to do. National Aboriginal Day (June 21) activities are held here...More
