Located on the ground floor of the Atlin Terminal in the historic Cow Bay district of Prince Rupert, 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 Tsmsyen 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.
