I would give the center itself 4 stars, good exhibits, solid staff, but the fact that they have 10 bicycles for use by anyone with an out of town id pushes them up to a 5.

As per the title, we walked in to find the souvenirs and only noticed the information about Yellowknife in the background. The staff were somewhat helpful when asked questions.

Taylor and Timothy were extra friendly, and explained all of the key sites within YK. Without their help, I may have missed certain destinations.

friendly staff, good souvenirs, referrals to tours and restaurants make the visitors centre worth visiting more than once... and there are free bicycles to borrow outside the door.

We were in Yellowknife for 10 days and those bikes certainly made it amazing and allowed us to explore all... More
