Eskimo Museum, Churchill

Delve into the history of some of Churchill's first inhabitants at Eskimo Museum. As far back as 4,000 years, the territory served as a seasonal hunting grounds for Pre-Dorset, Dorset, and Inuit cultures. The modest museum, built in 1944, offers a comprehensive collection of artifacts, including genuine carvings, hunting tools, and Inuit kayaks. Weave your way through the stories and folklore that make up the rich cultural heritage of these indigenous peoples. Knowledgeable staff on hand can enhance your experience. Don't miss the museum's renowned gift shop, selling some of the area's best Inuit art, books, and local crafts.
