We spent a rainy morning wandering through the displays and watching the excellent documentaries. We were the only two people in the Centre that day so we ended up having a very long and interesting discussion about early Canada and the North with the staff. Parks Canada has some of the most knowledgeable and passionate employees working in Churchill!

Although small in space, there is a lot to see in this location. Exhibits on the polar bears, the native Canadians. I especially liked being able to touch all the different types of animal furs to feel on soft, bristly, thick or thin

I am mad at myself for not remembering her name: she was fascinating, fun, sincere and such a scientist! The exhibitions are a plus after a tour on the Tundra.

We had a short talk and tour as part of our Natural Habitat polar bear trip. They have a small exhibit area, mainly about the local animals. The talk focused on local plants and highlights of the surrounding area. Given that everything we saw was covered with snow and ice, it was nice to see pictures of the place in... More

As part of our tour we visited the Centre and were given a tour by a most informative guide, followed by a film which was very interesting. Also learnt about trapping and saw and felt a number of pelts. Well worth a visit.
