A great place to visit before doing anything else in Churchill. The staff provides all the necessary information, and play a movie to give more idea. And, there are a good number of exhibits inside and flowers outside.

This museum served as a great introduction to the Churchill area. It has exhibits as well as a movie. It took about 20 min to see the exhibits then a bit more for the movie.

The Visitors Centre has limited hours - I had to go there three times before it was actually open. But worth a visit, there are interesting exhibits and the Parks Canada staff are there to answer questions.

Who knew such a great interpretative center would be in an old railroad station? The Via Rail station in Churchill was much too big for the service it supplies, so they sold it to Parks Canada, who uses it as their administrative center, but they turned most of the main floor into a marvelous visitor's center. It's a small but... More

Rhonda, Brian, Dave - the best guides you could ask for and the most knowledgeable about local flora, fauna, and history. Just the best.

This is essentially the visitors center for the nearly inaccessible Wapusk National Park, which lies just south of Churchill. They also have information about Prince of Wales Fort and about Churchill in general. The building (which is the old Churchill train station) also serves as the VIA Rail ticket office. If you're in Churchill, you'll almost certainly end up here... More

This center has some interesting displays about polar bears and a movie that I went back to see again. Not much to do in town and this is the best I found.
