The museum delights visitors throughout the year with a large collection of artifacts including many cedar baskets, stone tools, and a 3500-year-old mortuary stone.

Last year the museum unveiled a digital face reconstruction of a high-status shíshálh family, estimated to be 4,000 years old. The exhibition is called, ‘kw’enusitsht tems stutula which means, Face to Face with our ancestors. This exhibition took three years of work to construct and was a collaboration between the shíshálh Nation, the Canadian Museum of History, and the University of Toronto.
