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. Animal mounts reflecting the varieties 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.

Park Interpreters will greet you and answer all your questions about the natural and cultural history of the Whiteshell.  Ask the interpreters about upcoming programs, or ask about our family fun activities!

Located on PR 307 at Nutimik Lake. Admission is always free!

The Whiteshell Natural History Museum will be closed for 2017.

The original museum building has reached the end of its lifespan and is no longer structurally sound.  Manitoba Sustainable Development is working towards construction of a new building with projected opening planned for 2018.

The animal mounts and displays will be preserved for the new building and will also feature new exhibits.

Please visit us at either the Alfred Hole Goose Sanctuary Visitor Centre or the Whiteshell Fish Hatchery Interpretive Centre. Check park event posters for details on interpretive programming. 

The Museum closes for the winter season on August 24.
