The Museum offers a fascinating look into Haida Gwaii culture from diverse perspectives that explores; Haida knowledge, scientific information, natural specimens, oral history and art all blend together in a fluid and constantly changing exhibit context. We work collaboratively with communities and organizations to provide an inspiring and holistic learning experience of all things Haida Gwaii.
The Haida Gwai Museum is committed to using art as a means of facilitating creative dialogue that encourages a holistic and critical exploration of the multiple, diverse ways to understand Haida Gwaii. As the only cultural facility on Haida Gwaii designated as a category ”A” museum (and only one of 12 museums in BC with this designation) we are enabled to bring the work of regional, national and international artists to this isolated community. In this way, the museum serves the population of Haida Gwaii and is both a regional and community museum where the rich and diverse stories of Haida Gwaii are kept and told for people of today, as well as for future generations.
