I would highly recommend making this your first stop while in Yellowknife. The staff here are very helpful, kind and pleasant.

Its a busy place but the staff here give lots of helpful hints (how to see the northern lights without a tour, where to rent cars without going back to the airport, best hikes, etc).

This building is amazing and very under used. It's a great space with some very interesting exhibits. Also it's full on $1500 leather chairs that almost no one has ever sat in. Your tax dollars paid for this place so enjoy : )

They are very informative and gave some very good info for the area. They have a video about the mines if you are interested. Good little gift shop. Make sure you ask about getting a 3 day parking pass if you have a car.
