Great gift items, fantastic staff servcie, I was treated like family. Elijah, Tyler and Tracy made me feel at home and provided great information about local sites. They have a very detailed source book of information on local tours, restaurants and things to do. Highly recommend that both locals and visitors drop in.

Our half day City Tour of Yellowknife with Beck's Kennels ended with a call at this visitors centre. We were welcomed by the staff and each given a free Yellowknife souvenir pin badge - a nice touch. The centre houses a decent small museum and a good shop selling souvenirs and artwork produced largely by First Nations artists. The staff... More

He was friendly and gave us an abundance of ideas on what to do, where to do it and especially where to eat. We felt very welcome to pop back in anytime... More
