The talent in Yellowknife and that Yellowknife brings in is among the best in Canada. Always look for things happening at NACC because it will give you a local experience and flavor of the true folk of the North. Every opportunity to go is well worth it..

I liked all of the History and stories behind the artifacts at the museum but the food wasn't that good, it was dry and tasted bad.

Great lineup of shows and talent. If you get a chance, highly recommend the mountain/Banff film festival held there each year

Found many great craft items and art done by Yellowknife citizens. Worth the time. I liked finding out that the coop also had a website to purchase items from home.

There was so much to see here that you need some time. Some areas were unfinished and they could have put some signage to explain when it will be ready but overall I enjoyed the visit.

A great way to appreciate the indiginous people, their heritage, history, arts and crafts,and their participation in a yellowknife history of mining, fihing,etc. Abundance of waterways and lakes makes for a very pastoral connection with the enviroment. City has a nice feel, and a clean footprint. the enviroment

We were visiting between flights, so not much time. We were able to visit quite a bit, but could have spent many more hours enjoying. They have a large exhibit of the animals which inhabit the area, plus interesting First Nation history.
