To say my experience this summer with Parks Canada has been negative is an understatement. The rigid cancellation and changes to a reservation policies are unreasonable. I am travelling around Canada with friends from the UK and Australia I was excited to reveal what Parks Canada has to offer. After making a one night booking the day before, a storm... More

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.

Let's face it, when you have down time in Churchill, there isn't a whole lot to do. So walk on over to the train station and take in this center. Well laid out exhibits, good , informative, SHORT videos and a nice place to learn about the area. I am not much of a museum person but this place was... More

It is not unlikely any other visitor center with friendly staff trying to get you involved in the corresponding national park. Even though, the Wapusk National Park is quite far away, it's ambasadors, the Polar bears, are a constant parameter in Chruchill. So this visitor center does an extraordinary job in explaining the bear's world. I liked a diorama giving... More

The Parks guide there was so helpful and obliging it was awesome. She put on several videos and was an absolute delight to interact with. Extremely helpful when it came to describing the town and what to see! Excellent museum, not too much to absorb, just right! She made my visit fantastic!

This is a really well done museum, and it's worth a step inside just to see the mama polar bear with her cub in her den. But stay awhile - there's a lot more to see.
