Norman Wells Historical Society

Norman Wells – or Tłegǫ́hłı̨ (Thleh-go-lee) which translates to “where there is oil” – is a quaint little community nestled along the Mackenzie River with an incredibly rich history. At the Norman Wells Historical Centre/Museum, we are proud to be a hub for the ongoing preservation of that history and a destination for cultural appreciation. From oil and gas to aviation, big game hunting outfits to traditions of the Dene people – there is something for everyone.

In addition, The Great Bear Gift Shop carries many traditional crafts from Sahtu Regional artists along with gifts for any occasion.

We look forward to seeing you!

Mahsi Cho,

The Museum Staff
