Tucked away in the building that also serves as Churchill's train station, I wonder how many people would miss it as they pass through. Fantastic interpretation on the history, culture and wildlife of Churchill. You could spend half a day there easily and if the weather outside is cold enough why not do it.

The staff were so helpful and informative and the displays contained within were very interesting. If you travel to Churchill you have to visit this Centre.

More than a visitor center for Canada's Parks, it's also a mini museum. Well worth a stop. They also havea great free map of Churchill.

Dwain gave us a great interpretation of what is being done to conserve the land, animals, and culture of this remote area that is so vital to the ecosystem. History of Hudson Bay goes back before the US Revolution.

Interesting place to while away a bit of time but no wow factor. But if you're in Churchill it's worth a look

We went twice. There is a really interesting display about polar bears and some interactive screens where you can watch videos about the wildlife. There is also a lot of historical information about the. Hudson Bay company and what life was like. Really helpful staff who put on an extra video for us about the National Park

The staff were friendly and helpful and talked us through the map of the town. There was a small museum, free, and we watched a 30 min series of short documentaries about nearby research and national park.
