About This Park

The Nisga’a Museum is Hli Goothl Wilp-Adokshl Nisga’a, which means “The Heart of Nisga’a House Crests,” a name that celebrates the importance of tribes and tribal crests in Nisga’a society. With a design inspired by traditional Nisga’a longhouses, feast dishes, and canoes, the 929-square-metre museum opened in Laxgalts’ap, 150 kilometres northwest of Terrace, in the spring of 2011.

The heart of the Nisga’a Museum is the Ancestors’ Collection contains a stunning array of exquisitely carved masks, bentwood boxes, headdresses, soul catchers, and other works of art acquired from Nisga’a people during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
