Very nice building with a thorough history of Kitimat. There are many displays to enjoy and a small gift shop on the first floor. On the second floor, they had a temporary display of flamingo dancing. Very nice.

The museum was a nice surprise for my 10 year old son and myself. We really enjoyed looking at all the animals and there was so many that blended in, that it took awhile to spot them. Also...some really cute and pretty souvenirs here.

This is worth a 30 minute visit when visiting Kitimat or simply for an afternoon looking for something different to do! The staff are wonderful, the exhibits are over the top and the shop offers a wide collection of interesting souvenirs.
