Summary: The purpose of this site and this collection is to ensure the long term protection, conservation and development of Nunavut’s museum collection.
The virtual museum has been divided into: Arts and Crafts, Jewellery, Ceramics, Sculpture, Explorers and Textiles.
On November 26, 2002, as a result of the creation of Nunavut, the Governments of Nunavut and the Northwest Territories reached an agreement to divide the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre’s museum and archives collections. These priceless collections will be delivered to Nunavut from Yellowknife as soon as Nunavut has its own heritage centre.
