AMNH's Revitalized Northwest Coast Hall Opens May 13


Introducing the fully revitalized Northwest Coast Hall



The iconic Northwest Coast Hall, the Museum’s oldest gallery, reopens to the public on May 13, with new exhibits developed with Indigenous communities from the Pacific Northwest Coast.

The fully revitalized hall showcases the creativity, scholarship, and cultural history of the Indigenous peoples of the Northwest Coast of North America, from southern Alaska through Canada to Washington State, including the Coast Salish, Gitxsan, Haida, Haíłzaqv, Kwakwa̲ka̲’wakw, Nisǥa’a, Nuu-chah-nulth, Nuxalk, Tlingit, and Tsimshian communities.

Learn about the vitality and persistence of Native Nations of the Pacific Northwest Coast and see cultural treasures—including the iconic 63-foot-long Great Canoe, towering monumental carvings, and contemporary Northwest Coast art—enriched with interpretation, storytelling, and dynamic media developed with Native scholars, artists, historians, filmmakers, and language experts.
