The Aboriginal Artifacts collection containing over 3700 Indigenous artworks and artifacts began as a teaching collection. In 1978, the acquired pieces were catalogued as an artifact collection. The museum is housed at the Portage College Corporate Centre, which is situated in the beautiful County of Lac La Biche, Alberta.
Visitors to the museum will be able to enjoy a self-guided tour of Aboriginal art and culture. Guided group tours can also be accommodated with prior arrangements. The exhibits provide an in-depth look at North American Aboriginal Art from First Nations, Métis and Inuit cultures.
