“Learn the history of the Northwest Territories”
Dedicated to protecting, preserving and promoting the history and cultures of the NWT. The Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre (PWNHC) is the Government of the Northwest Territories’ museum and archives. The PWNHC acquires and manages objects and archival materials that represent the cultures and history of the Northwest Territories (NWT), plays a primary role in documenting and providing information about the cultures and history of the NWT, and provides professional museum, archives and cultural resource management services to partner organizations. The PWNHC holds in trust for the public a large collection of objects that represent the peoples and cultures of the NWT, and produces exhibitions that tell stories about the land, people and history of the NWT. However, the PWNHC is "more than a museum". In addition to its exhibits, collections and conservation programs, the PWNHC houses the NWT Archives, provides technical, logistic and financial support to individuals and organizations involved in cultural activities and the arts, and authorizes archaeological studies in the NWT.
Well managed, educational exhibit, fun treasure hunting for kid ( well.. My 10-year-old was very satisfied! Questions sheet), the kids' play area is outstanding! Strongly recommended!!! Read more
