The first thing you will see when you step inside the Qaumajuq (formerly the Inuit Art Centre) will be a stunning, three-storey-high visible vault filled with thousands of Inuit carvings – a powerful introduction to your Qaumajuq experience.
“I hope you’ll join me in helping to build this important and iconic museum. Qaumajuq will soon celebrate its grand opening and I know that, like me, you will feel enormously proud when you walk through the doors and can say, ‘I helped create this’”. ~ Bob Williams.
