This was our second visit to the museum, this time with my sister-in-law. This is a first-class museum of Inuit art. The gift shop is impressive and proceeds go to the cooperatives that exhibit and to maintaining the museum.

Don't waste your time. My daughter and I were so disappointed. We were out in 15 minutes. There was not a lot of art and the majority of it was sculptures from the past 10 years. There was no history, and there was no way...More

The museum was having some work done while we were there, so it was a bit dusty. There are some really amazing pieces of art, some so small it is mind boggling how someone could carve such detail. There are a few project spots for...More
