The Prince Rupert Visitor Centre is located in the Port Interpretive Centre on the ground floor of the Atlin Terminal in the historic Cow Bay district of Prince Rupert. If you’re planning a trip anywhere in BC, or are in Prince Rupert visiting yourself, our informative and friendly staff are available to help you discover our nature or help you plan your next destination. The Port Interpretive Centre tells the story of the Port of Prince Rupert. It is a story that stretches from 10,000 years ago — when the area served as a vital trading hub for the Ts’msyen First Nation — to the present, with the rapid growth of the port’s commerce in containers, coal, and grain. A highlight for visitors of all ages is the Interactive Trade Route Simulator, a sensory feature that allows visitors to select a commodity and ‘launch’ a ship to visualize the supply chain of imports and exports flowing through the Port of Prince Rupert.
