This trip we made use of the Music Library. We both have often gone there for conferences and residencies...it has an atmosphere of its own, and a spectacular view. Also, the restaurant is excellent. (for use of those registered only, I believe)

After seeing the Canadian Brass play at the Eric Harvie Theatre on the long weekend, you realize how amazing it is to have the Centre and the theaters so close. What a great venue and performance.

The Banff centre is apart of Banff as much... More

The Banff Centre is a lovely place to study 'far from the madding crowd". I studied Musical Theatre there in the summer of 1982 and am still in touch with many colleagues from that experience.

We ate at the Banff Centre and had some very nice service from someone we believe called Sammi. She was in the Sally Borden Building and was very pleasant to us. The layout of the centre is great. thanks again

I stayed in Banff for visiting the Banff National Park and the Rocky Mountains (particularly Lake Louise). This is a very nice and small town, with a great environment surrounded by nature, mountains and wildlife. It is perfect for couples.
