Welcome to Hli Goothl Wilp-Adokshl Nisgaa, a name representing the four tribes that make up the Nisgaa Nation. The museum displays artifacts of all four peoples within its permanent exhibition, an assemblage of 300+ art objects that left the Nass Valley in the latter part of the 19th Century and early part of the 20th Century. During the struggle for our treaty, Nisga’a elders and leaders fought to ensure this scattered legacy would find its way back home. Now, housed in a permanent place of honour, this treasury of Nisga’a culture ranks as one of the preeminent collections of Northwest Coast aboriginal art.
Anhooya’ahl Ga’angigatgum’ (the Ancestors’ Collection) is now open. This gathering of priceless artifacts — on display together for the first time — contains over 300 Nisga’a cultural treasures. You will be moved by the power and spirit encountered here.The Nisga’a Museum has two beautiful new temporary exhibitions for our visitors this summer!
