About Our Museum Gift Shop

Our sales and information desk

The Museum store is a modest one, located at the front information desk, near the museum entry.  The store is a primary outlet for village craftsmen and women.  Perhaps the best known craft from this community is the widely renowned “Anaktuvuk Pass Caribou Skin Mask.”  We also, from time to time, carry other traditional craft items such as caribou skin boots or mittens, Eskimo yo-yo’s and beadwork, when they are available.
