“Unpretentious World Class Collection”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

One of the best collections of indigenous art in the Northern part of Canada, all gathered in one large room and curated by friendly people. Allow a little longer than you would expect, since you're certain to be drawn in to ever expanding collection.

“Fascinating!”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

My visit started with an interesting talk from the curator who gave background information on the museum. I was then able to explore the exhibits myself and ask questions of the staff who were on hand. There are a lot of very interesting exhibits spanning millions of years, from the largest trilobite fossil right up to modern day sculptures.

The gift shop has a great range of items.

Definitely worth a visit when you are in Churchill!

“So informative!”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

This museum was on my to do list, but I didn't get to it until my last hours in Churchill. This is a great place to study the history of the different natives as well as a good spot to pick up unique gifts.
