The Natural History Gallery showcases several different exhibits including a coastal rain forest diorama highlighted by live plants and tidal-pool animals, and a climate change exhibit which explores the province’s future climate. The First Peoples Gallery includes an exhibit focusing on the historic Nisga'a agreement and the present-day Nisga'a community, and Haida argillite carvings.
