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.

The Centre is full of Canadian information, history and displays. The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. It's like a talking museum. We spent about 1 hour there and it was worth it!

Very nice renovated train station. We watched a great little video about the nearby national park. Wished we had had more time to explore the remainder of the museum - good info on the local wildlife and plants, etc.
