with the CNSC
Churchill is an amazing destination for anyone interested in nature, wildlife, history, and culture. And don’t let the lack of road access fool you — we’re a very welcoming community!
As an active research station located within the Churchill Wildlife Management Area, our Centre is a great choice for a standalone trip, as an educational site for your school or independent group, or as an enriching bonus feature to a visit you already have planned.
Monday to Friday: 8am to 4pm
Saturday & Sunday: 11am to 2pm
make yourself at home
If you are interested in stopping in and seeing the Centre for yourself, you can access our public facilities for a $5 day use fee. You’ll be able to take a self-guided tour, view our outdoor observation deck and Aurora dome, browse our library, and grab a cup of coffee at our cafeteria.
Day use fees are waived for members.
Get your swag
Our gift shop is open to the public during business hours. We carry postcards, stamps, books, CNSC brand clothing, locally made jams and jellies, and other souvenirs.
There is no fee to enter the gift shop.
Every season in Churchill is a unique experience, each with its own natural wonders to savour and appreciate.
Your Visit Will Help
Support Subarctic Research
We hope that you will be inspired by your visit to our Centre and that you will return home with the knowledge and enthusiasm to be an ambassador for Canada’s subarctic habitat.
Your visit will help researchers directly, too, since all programming revenue is used to provide them with affordable, accessible facilities to continue their critical work.
