Overview

Suuda Ganunsid, ad gina waadluuxan gan yahguudang Xaayda Gwaay.yaay iiji. To inspire understanding and respect for all that Haida Gwaii is.

The Haida Gwaii Museum works collaboratively with communities and organizations to provide an inspiring and holistic learning experience of all things Haida Gwaii. Underlying it all is the understanding of our inseparable relationship to the land, the sea and the supernatural – that which gives Haida Gwaii its incomparable natural and cultural character. The Museum offers a fascinating look into Haida Gwaii culture from All-Island perspectives that explores; Haida knowledge, scientific information, natural specimens, oral history and art all blend together in a fluid and constantly changing exhibit context.

Originally opened in 1976, the museum has gone through more than three decades of development and growth, building an incredible collection of Haida historical treasures and contemporary art. The museum’s mandate is driven by its strong connection with the community, and leaves a lasting impression with all of its visitors.

Allow the chronological layout of the museum to take you through the galleries, from pre-contact (In the Beginning) , to post-contact (Contact & Conflict), to contemporary (Our Way of Life). Here you will find galleries filled with incredible pieces of Haida history and contemporary life, ranging from all mediums of Haida art and culture, including button blankets, argillite carvings, and even totem poles. There are also galleries exploring the rich natural history of our Islands and one introducing the Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site. The museum also has an exhibitions gallery that features several art shows throughout the year.

No visit to the Haida Gwaii Museum is complete without a stop at the Haida Gwaii Museum Gift Shop. The museum also carries a unique and diverse range of original Haida artwork, souvenirs and gifts.
