Journey to Churchill is a 10 acre exhibit at Assiniboine Park Zoo that opened in the summer of 2014. 

The centerpiece of the exhibit is the Gateway to the Artic, a one-of-a-kind facility which features a large saltwater aquarium for polar bears that visitors can view from inside a 10-foot-wide acrylic tunnel as well as a 360° theatre.

It also includes The International Polar Bear Conservation Centre which combines research and lab space with an interactive media exhibit.  The Tundra Grill houses a restaurant, gift shop, kids play area, and washrooms.  From here you can watch the polar bears beyond a 150-foot-long wall of specially reinforced glass.
