Very nice building with a thorough history of Kitimat. There are many displays to enjoy and a small gift shop on the first floor. On the second floor, they had a temporary display of flamingo dancing. Very nice.

The museum was a nice surprise for my 10 year old son and myself. We really enjoyed looking at all the animals and there was so many that blended in, that it took awhile to spot them.
Also...some really cute and pretty souvenirs here.

A little bit of Kitimat history.
Jul. 2017 • Family
While staying with family in Kitimat for the first time, we visited the museum to find out a little bit more about the history of the place. It's located right next to the Mall in the town centre and very accessible. The exhibits are very well laid out and it was very informative and interesting.
There's a little souvenir shop in the museum too. Entrance to the museum is free but there's a donation box should you wish to make one towards keeping the place running.
A very enjoyable visit, thank you.

This is worth a 30 minute visit when visiting Kitimat or simply for an afternoon looking for something different to do! The staff are wonderful, the exhibits are over the top and the shop offers a wide collection of interesting souvenirs.

Great little local museum
Aug. 2016 • Couples
Small and local museum telling the long history of the area and its growth. Lots of information gathered here and the place where my other half grew up 50+ years ago. Interesting to see all the places that had not changed that much from the early days, but then the huge changes later on. Lots of fun and well worht the look around.
