Attractions, Museums and Galleries in Prince Rupert
After touring the Museum of Northern BC and the First Nations Carving Shed for a taste of Northwest BC First Nations culture, stroll through Prince Rupert's waterfront parks to learn about its history as a seaside community. Prince Rupert has also transformed what was once an abandoned hole in the ground into the beautiful Sunken Gardens in the downtown area. Prince Rupert's First Nations have transformed the simple fun of a basketball game into a three-day international basketball tournament featuring BC and US First Nations teams. For a more active adventure than shopping, strolling or watching sports, there’s lots of great kayaking in places such as Port Edward near the North Pacific Cannery. Copper Mountain’s 350-metre face is less than a two-hour drive from Prince Rupert and awaits rock climbers looking to test their vertical prowess. There are so many things to do in Prince Rupert besides shopping in Cow Bay, golfing, skiing, or eating at a restaurant; make sure to ask hotel staff about how to get the most out of every visit to tiny Prince Rupert on Kaien Island.
