Good introductory film. Taxidermy of polar bear den with mother and Cubs is excellent. Mock up of the Prince of Wales Fort makes it easy to see the full layout. A wonderful collection of the animal furs that were traded.

Spent about an hour touring the centre and its displays. Found it interesting as it was our first time in the North and the information here was quite helpful.

Had a great visit at the Parks Canada office. The attendant was very friendly and most helpful in providing an overview of the area. She also provided us with a short 20 minute video of the Wapusk National Park.

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!
