Old Massett is one of the Islands' two Haida communities and is located 3km north of Masset at the entrance to Dixon Entrance on Masset Sound.
Old Massett is home to a number of talented Haida artists with carving sheds, home-based studios or additions to their homes from which they work and sell their art. Most of these places of business are well-signed and artists are welcoming when visitors stop by. Often the hours of operation fluctuate and it is best to try to call for an appointment. Check our Arts and Culture directory listings for details and contact information.
Businesses located in Old Massett include artists' galleries, gift shops and studios, eco-tourism ventures, cafes and accommodations.
Attractions in Old Massett include the Islands' largest collection of contemporary totem poles (17) located throughout the village including the first pole to be raised on Haida Gwaii since 1871.
