And I came home with a camera full of images and mental pictures in my mind of the dancing lights that will last a lifetime. However, the dancing lights, as it were, did not wind up being... More

Excellent place to visit first if you are in Yellowknife. Tyler was great - he suggested all kinds of places to go. More importantly, he suggested some great itineraries that allowed us to see a lot of things in an efficient manner. There are also some nice videos and exhibits as well as a small store.

It's like a gift shop. Good to browse around. And if you sign your name at the cashier's desk in the visitor log book, you get a Yellowknife pin.
