The Eskimo museum is an excellent collection of history and culture of the Churchill area. One can spend a lot of time examining the numerous sculptures and learning the stories behind some of them. There is also a huge stuffed polar bear and walrus, among the displays. The museum has a small, but very nice gift shop..

Small museum dealing with Inuit culture. Well organized displays that let you learn about the culture through works of art. Interesting carvings and good audio commentary for independent travelers.

You can find the most interesting stuffed animals and remains as well as miniature carvings. It is the best place to find Inuit art for sale. a good selection of soap stone carvings as well as prints and postcards.
