You can find the most interesting stuffed animals and remains as well as miniature carvings. It is the best place to find Inuit art for sale. a good selection of soap stone carvings as well as prints and postcards.

This is the type of museum that really helps you understand the history of the area and the native peoples. If you have an extra hour in Churchill, this is a must see.

A fascinating museum with a local expert on hand to talk you through the numerous displays. There is also a interesting shop selling a wide range of books and souvenirs there too.

Everything you could possible want to know about Inuit people, the Itsanitaq Museum. Amazing artifacts, carvings, jewelry, tools, paintings, displays, and a great curator, Lorraine. She knows everything about the First People. It's a small place but full of items with a small sovign

This was a very thorough exhibit of Eskimo cuture and art. Many items in the gift shop were Canadian-made. There's a full-size birch bark canoe! There were many taxidermied specimens of the Arctic as well. The tiny Eskimo carvings were interesting as well as almost hard to see!

If you go to Churchill you must take the time to see the Eskimo museum. It is fantastic. The number of pieces and the self guided tour aids were fascinating.
