Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre

The Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre (PWNHC) has it all—from airplanes and gold-mining memorabilia to ancient archeological artifacts and a Dene moose hide boat.

Journey through the PWNHC and explore its art galleries/artwork, and culture and heritage objects from across the NWT.

The PWNHC is much more than just a museum; It houses over 75,000 objects in its collection, along with 350,000 photos, maps and rare books preserved in the archives. It’s a community space, a cultural centre and an important supporter of the arts. The Centre hosts a wide variety of exhibits and public programming with a quick turnaround.
