Went there twice as I enjoyed it immensely the people who worked there were very knowledgeable and friendly. They told us all about the plight of the train as well as interesting facts about the area and the movement of the Dene Indians. Loved it.

Well informed staff at the front desk, started a video of what life was like "up north" years ago, nicely done with what what used to be the train station.

A great place to stop early into your visit to Churchill. You can learn a lot from the friendly, helpful staff. We got tips about Churchill and more importantly about Polar Bear safety. They also have very interesting exhibits to peruse.

We highly enjoyed our visit to this museum (small, but informative). Docent also showed us a film on bears and gave us a great presentation. It is definitely worth a visit while you are in Churchill.

The ranger gave us insight into the life of people and animals living in this harsh subArctic world. Well done exhibits detail the story of Churchill and the hunting, trapping and fishing that sustain their lives.

This little museum is a fascinating place to learn about life in Hudson Bay, Canada. We had a great guide who explained about animal habits (with a fascinating exhibit on pregnant female polar bear denning) and how humans have made their living in this part...More
