“Eskimo Museum Not to Be Missed”
Reviewed August 15, 2007

The Eskimo Museum is located on one of the side streets of Churchill. The outside of the building is not impressive. But step in inside and be prepared for a surprise. The history, life and times of the Eskimoes and the Inuit are told through the art work and the tools used by these native people. There are excellent displays of whale bone, ivory and soap stone carvings.

Hunting scences are delicately reproduced in minature on pieces of ivory and whale bone. What is surprisng to see is how there is a sense of humor captured with these hunting scences.

There is one person on staff who can answer your questions.

There are carvings which you can purchase.

This is an attraction not to be missed.
