The Museum of Northern British Columbia is a must-see for anyone visiting Prince Rupert, though the town has several other unique museums.
Museum of Northern British Columbia
This outstanding museum is among the best in the region. The treasures inside are the main attraction, however, the building itself has its own presence. Located on the waterfront of First Avenue downtown, the museum is an impressive log building built in the style of a traditional Northwest Coast First Nations longhouse.
The Museum of Northern British Columbia displays items that date back to the end of the last ice age. It contains well-preserved, historical Tsimshian and other First Nations items including works of art, clothing, baskets and more. It also features more modern historical artifacts from the city's railway era.
