Journey to Churchill
The Assiniboine Park Zoo, about twenty minutes west of The Fort Gary Hotel, won three major awards in 2015 for its "Journey to Churchill" exhibit. The exhibit introduces visitors to the magical wildlife and ecosystems of Northern Canada and the Arctic. On display are polar bears, muskoxen, Arctic fox, and wolves. The website says: "It is the most comprehensive northern species exhibit of its kind in the world." Highlights of the exhibit include Sea Ice Passage, an underwater viewing tunnel, and the Aurora Borealis Theatre: a domed theatre with a 360 degree view of the northern lights. The Assiniboine Park Zoo has special events each month for all ages. This September, they will host a Pokemon Go day and Grandparents Day.
