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 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

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
