ITS A MUSEUM

A small but compacted history of Churchill. Proceeds from the sale from the gift shop go directly into maintaining and improving the museum

Well curated, and our guide was very informative. The carvings and art work are amazing. It is a brief touch with a culture that is much ignored.

This small but excellent museum is a must see on your trip to Chirchill. It is very well done and treats all subjects In an honest and respectful manner. The history is so well explained visually and verbally that it leaves you wanting more. The artifacts that have been recovered are amazing and well perserved.

This is worth a stop to get a tour of the wealth of material that is a relatively small facility. I learned a lot about the history of the area, in particular about the native peoples.

Wonderful little museum. Excellent collection of Inuit artifacts. The gift shop has a ton of books, Inuit art, and many other items. Reasonable prices, and the proceeds stay in the area

Definitely the one place you have to visit while in Churchill. The artifacts were amazing and so many of them for such a small place. I learned a lot about the Inuit and the history of the area. The curators there were fabulous and knowledgable, and they have the best gift shop in town.

A one room museum that was full of really interesting First Nation displays and a great gift shop. Our docent was knowledgable, and thankfully didn't go on and on. A enjoyable 45 minute visit.

As others have said, it is a small museum. It is helpful to have a volunteer explain the artifacts so you understand what it is you are looking at. A lot of information is crammed into a small space.

Yoh can pet a polar bear here as well as learn about the people and the animals of the arctic. You can feel the various hides of the various animals. Simple but engaging exhibits

This is a one room museum absolutely packed with a zillion beautiful and interesting pieces of art of local First Nation artists old and new. Really fascinating- a must if you are at all interested in native culture. And a tiny alcove with wonderful gifts to take home. I bought books for children, beautiful pewter ornaments, a magnet and charms... More
