Food was of the gourmet type; not what you'd expect at a place like this! Was a little loud as there was a school tour through.

If you go when there is Dancing you will be doubly blessed. This is a wonderful spot, a lot of history, ....much to see...you can go for a super walk, or just stay in the main building, & have lunch, buy a gift, watch a short movie, & talk to the employees who are very knowledgeable.

$8 per adult to look a a couple stuffed bison and to view a boring video. Youre better off staying outside the museum and hiking the trails surrounding the museum. Save your money...stay away from inside.

There are not tons of displays here but the ones there are tend to be very good. There are lots of trails here. The one we took had very good views of the South Saskatchewan River. We also saw one of the buffalo jumps. In order to get the most out of this facility I think it is necessary to... More

Very disappointed that all Indoor displays Have been replaced with meeting rooms. Only thing to see is walking the outdoor trails, which makes place a total waste in bad weather and all winter. Too much for walking trails.

We visited this heritage site expecting more, to be honest. It consists of a roomy, modern building which encompasses archilogical dig consisting currently on 19 sites. There is an interesting video to be seen on arrival and we were treated to a dance-display by a local native gentleman and it was fascinating to hear his stories. There are displays on... More

Our experience consisted solely of the self interpretative walk. It was gorgeous scenery and amazing to think of the people who lived on the land and hunted the bison. Didn't get a chance to go through the gallery as they were closing but was well worth the visit just for the hike.
