Museum Project

The rich history of Yellowknife is worth saving, documenting and displaying. However, there is currently no such place dedicated to showcasing this story. The Yellowknife Historical Society is constructing a unique community-driven museum. When completed, this museum will:

  • Be a vibrant, one of a kind, tourist attraction for the Northwest Territories.
  • Become a focal point for the social, industrial, and geologic heritage of Yellowknife and region.
  • Contribute to opportunities for other spin-off businesses associated with the adjacent lake and boating facilities.
  • Boost NWT tourism by attracting a new market of tourists.
  • Increase business to local hotels, restaurants, retail stores, gas stations, campgrounds, gift shops, etc.

The Society is seeking to engage a wide variety of patrons including researchers, rock hounds, historians, and tourism operators. In order to make this a reality, the Society is calling for monetary support.
