The centre has a good museum about the culture of this First Nation group and a large statue of Glooscap, a part of the Mi'kmaq creation story. The gift ship is excellent, with many diverse items. Definitely worth a visit.

Do stop here if you have a chance. The center has a nice size well-designed museum, a large gift shop and an opportunity to see a film on the history of the Mickmaw First Nation people. You probably don’t need more than 45 minutes here, but the time you spend will be worthwhile.

The Historic video first was excellent background for the rest of the museum. Cultural exhibits are outstanding. Gift shop and prints had good indigenous representation at reasonable prices.

Excellent museum. I learned so much about the Mi'kmaw people. It was so informative. If you get a chance, watch the video. I learned so much from it. Really amazing to see all the artifacts. Staff was very friendly, and the gift shop is very nice as well. Check this out when you are in the area.

The displays and interactive exhibits show the life of the Mi’kmaw people before, during, and after European contact. Tours and workshops explain native spirituality, legends, community practices, and drum-making. And the gift shop has artwork, books and notecards celebrating the Mi'kmaw culture. All very humbling; we have much to learn from First Nation people.

Our visit began with a talk by two First Nation interpreters. They explained their past and present culture, heritage and traditions. They welcomed questions. In this small center are beautiful examples of Mi'kmawn bead and quill work, clothing, tools and other artifacts. The gift shop features prints, cards and art work done by First Nation artists.We bought a card depicting a stylized moose which we will mat and frame.

Excellent museum with super-smart docents, anxious to tell the story of these First Nations people's thousands of years of history in the Maritimes.

Very nice audio-visual presentation, great exhibits and super-cool Museum shop with native crafts at affordable prices.

It's just off the highway and well worth a visit.

On a recent bus tour we stopped here for a visit. The staff were friendly and informative. Two members of the First Nation People explained their history, legends and present day life. There were many exhibits to view and a large gift shop with local crafts and art for sale. Behind the Heritage Center was a 40 ft. high statue of Glooscap, the first human created by a bolt of lightning in the sand and is present in many Mi'kmaq myths.This was an interesting and worthwhile stop on our tour.

Stopped in here for a quick visit since I was staying next door at the Super 8 Hotel, mostly because I was intrigued by the big statue of a Mi'kmaq that you can see from the Highway. There's more to it than the statue though, some interesting information about the Mi'kmaq people. Worth taking a look.
