Step into the stories of the First Nation people of Churchill, Manitoba-- stories that are told through hand-crafted artifacts of the Inuit people, who have made their lives in these lands for several thousand years. Established in Churchill over 70 years ago, each piece of artwork has been craft fully curated. While the museum is mainly filled with art that pertains to the Inuit culture, there are also a number of archaeological pieces as well as natural history pieces, like a stuffed polar bear and other animals. The museum also serves as a gift shop and is completely privately-funded through purchases. Learning the culture of this fascinating people group truly serves to give a stronger appreciation for their way of life and all of the incredible ways they went about surviving in these lands where the polar bears roam.
