Interesting but I was disappointed in the gift area--mainly soapstone carvings and I guess I expected some inuit bone carvings. Lovely little museum. Glad I went.

Great small museum. Lots of interesting displays. Docent was very enthusiastic and informative. Small gift shop in corner of museum. Depending on your desire, you could spend hours here exploring the displays.
