The visitor center is located in Churchill train station and includes displays about local fauna as well as local history. There is a small projection room where you can see films related to the Wapusk park. The rangers were very nice and helpful.

I went with a group and for us, the museum employees baked and made several local dishes and drinks.

Well worth the visit for information about Wapusk National Park, area history and information on the polar bears. The exhibit of a mom & cubs in a den was especially interesting.

This interesting centre for local wildlife and culture, is next to/in the same building as the Via Rail Churchill ticket office and station, which only adds to its charm! If you are a train buff like me, then you can nip outside to see the Winnipeg to Churchill train, when it is in the station. There is also a fascinating... More

We enjoyed our visit to this center as well as a talk from one of the rangers. It is worth the time to see it and the exhibits

Stopped in while in Churchill and was pleasantly surprised with the nice little museum they had. Very friendly staff as well.

Part of the Churchill train station, there is a nice little interpretive center, with native handicrafts, historical displays, and some good animal exhibits, including a polar bear maternity den. Good docents, informational videos, and animal pelts on display

Unfortunately, our tour group visited the Visitors Centre at the end of a long day of listening to people talk at us. But it was a quaint place with much better displays than I would have expected. Our guide had lots to share with us, but it was hard to listen to it all. We spent more time listening to... More

You don't need a lot of time for a visit, but you'll leave with a great deal of knowledge that can enhance your trip to Churchill and area. There's a model bear den, pelts from many different animals that you can touch, and cultural artifacts and information about the history and settlement of the area. The interpreters are keen to...
