Giving our past a future.


Educational Programs

DIG FURTHER into the past through our educational programs which will give you access to unforgettable hands-on experiences!

Apart from standard tours, The Northern Life Museum & Cultural Centre offers a variety of programming year long to school groups, daycares, youth organizations, tourists and individuals. These programs are accessible to all and can be tailored to any age group. These programs are offered during our regular hours of operation but special considerations for after hour programming can be made with advance notice.


Dig further into the fur trade era and learn the tricks and tools of the trade from the voyageur, the man who played an intricate role in the exploration of the north. Learn what it takes to conquer the great lake and streams of the Mackenzie and the rapids of the great Slave River.


Get the exclusive opportunity to sneak a peek at some of the 17,000 artifacts that lurk in the vault of the Northern Life Museum. Slip on the white gloves of a museum collection manager and learn hands-on how we collect, preserve and exhibit these artifacts.


Step back into time and learn the traditional games of the people of the north and how they contributed to the development of skills necessary to live on the land passed on from generation to generation.
