The center is always fun and exciting to visit. Art exhibitions , open air concerts in a breathtaking scenery or a lone coyote walking across your path , the place is full of surprises.

Lovely setting down by the Bow River, in a log cabin. Didn't realise how big some of the animals were until I saw them in this situation. Nicely laid out, well worth a visit.

Some staff were rude and not at all helpful. The rooms are old. The bistro service was slow and the food was expensive with small portions. Its a neat location with great views around the campus but lacks customer service.

Banff is a small tourist town, about 150 miles from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The city is cozy and the surroundings are beautiful. Lake Louise, nearby, is a breathtaking spot.

We feel so fortunate to have found the indoor climbing walls at the Banff Centre. Just 4$ to drop in and a mere 3$ for harness and shoe rental. Highly, highly recommended !!

Although it is the highest town in Canada with an elevation of 1.383 metres it certainly doesn't feel like it as it nestles below the towering Rundle Mountain. Banff is a town worth exploring.

We spent and afternoon in Banff and enjoyed the beautiful back drop of the Rocky Mountains. There is all kinds of shopping to be had and restaurants and watering holes for everyone to enjoy.

The Banff Centre can be easy to overlook, but it hosts an array of concerts, dance, theater productions, and films. The venue for live music is nicely set up, good space and intimate.
