The Yellowknife Historical Society is by and for Yellowknifers, and is therefore supported by its dedicated membership of individuals and businesses in the North. Your activism through donations, sponsorship, and membership will be put towards the Yellowknife Historical Museum and other Society projects and activities as we celebrate the history of our city. We are thankful to all of those who helped make the Museum a reality by offering financial or in-kind support, and we appreciate the continued support!

Perks include:

  • Contributing to the Museum’s Exhibits, such as our Hall of Fame

The Yellowknife Historical Museum is by and for Yellowknifers, so be one of the many who have contributed to enriching the Museum experience.
