There was a show that was both informative and fun with music and costuming. They had refreshments including bannock, one of son's favorite food. My... More

this was one of the most interesting places we visited in Vancouver. We had an absolutely wonderful time and I learned some awesome things about First Nation people. It is worth the time to go, it is free to go in and you will be all the better for having experienced it.

The train was fun, the village has interesting write-ups and displays, but what made the visit special was the friendly and knowledgeable welcome from the various First... More

They took their creations home and described how they made their very own dream catchers choosing their own feathers and beads. A train ride through the life of salmon... More

The man leading the crafts time was so patient with our kids and encouraged them to consider the value of working to make your own things. He... More

Found this village quite by chance and were delighted. When we arrived, The First Nations were doing a story through song and dance, which was very moving. Everyone should pay a visit, it is very informative, as well as being cultural.
