Member Northern Life Museum and Cultural Centre

In the heart of Fort Smith, this must-see museum showcases the area’s First Nations, Métis and Euro-Canadian heritage. It boasts a collection of some 10,000 items, including local man Frank Conibear’s famous trap, which revolutionized fur-harvesting, and the stuffed body of Canus, a whooping crane sire whose, um, efforts brought his species back from the brink of extinction in nearby Wood Buffalo National Park.
