We had a video and ranger discussion one evening after a full day of polar rover tours and I was disappointed we did not have more time and energy to see this lovely museum. It presents, in a streamlined way, the human history of this part of the Canadian Arctic quite well, and is second on the list of things to see in Churchill after the Eskimo Museum.

We arrived just as a tour was beginning with a ranger. After showing us around the centre we saw a film about the Wapusk National Park (means White Bear in Cree-one of the 3 indigious tribes). WNP is were you view the polar bears.

We were in the center twice looking for info on the area. The staff knew the place very well and gave out excellent information. They also have a lot of displays to tell you about the local area.

This is a great visitor centre, with lots of information and displays including a theatre where the staff will play any number of free videos for you on northern sights like the northern lights, Inuit and polar bears. Best of all its free. The parks Canada staff are great here, full of information and advice. It's within the train station and definitely a must see.
