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.

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
