Lord Strathcona Museum

Recently the community of Rigolet received high praise for their tourism industry.

Jack Shiwak is the Acting Chairman of the Rigolet Heritage Society.

He says a German cruise ship arrived with 142 tourists all eager to see what the community had to offer.

This was the first cruise ship to visit their port this season.

Shiwak says the tourists were mainly from Germany, Austria and France.

The three main stops on their tour were the Net Loft Museum, the community board walk and the newly constructed Lord Strathcona Museum.

He says the tourists enjoyed walking around their community and meeting the locals.

Shiwak added that after the tour, they were informed by the Cruise Ship operators that the tour was exactly what they were hoping for and they will certainly be back.
