To ensure the health and safety of staff and visitors, the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre has health and safety guidelines that comply with the GNWT’s Emerging Wisely Plan. These practices include:
Reduced overall visitor capacity. There will now be a limit of 80 visitors in the museum at a time.
Gallery capacities will also be limited. These capacities will be marked at the entrance of each gallery.
Increased cleaning. The museum has been thoroughly cleaned in preparation of re-opening and cleaning will continue throughout the day.
Closure of the Museum Café and water fountain. Snacks from home can be brought and eaten in the café dining area.
Closure of interactive exhibits. Most interactive portions of the museum will be closed, covered or removed for visitor safety. This includes the Discovery Gallery (kids’ area), which will remain closed until further notice.
The museum kindly asks visitors to:
Stay home if they are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19
Consider wearing a mask to protect themselves and others, although not mandatory
Maintain physical distancing measures
Sanitize hands when entering the building
Observe signage for traffic flow
Wash hands often and/or use hand cleaning stations
Please be patient and kind as we navigate and adjust to this new situation
