Interesting place to while away a bit of time but no wow factor. But if you're in Churchill it's worth a look

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

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.

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.
