Whiteshell Natural History Museum

Opened in 1960, the log constructed museum has been a favourite stop for many park visitors. Its displays are a blend of the old and the new. Numerous mounts reflecting the variety of wildlife at home in the park were donated by local cottagers and residents. Newer displays focus on the boreal forest, Aboriginal peoples, petroforms, sturgeon and the Winnipeg River. A new classroom size addition allows for indoor programs when weather conditions don't allow outdoor activities. Interpreters based at the museum can provide information about tours of the nearby Bannock Point petroform site.

Located on PR 307 at Nutimik Lake. Admission: FREE

Open: daily, from May long weekend to September long weekend, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
