A rather old film shows you how they clear snow from the mountains and avoid avalanches. Some useful information on the local area. Free entry if you have a Parks Canada pass.

We enjoyed a break in our drive at the centrism which gives a good history of the pass and the use of guns to clear avalanche threats, even to this day. It's also a great place to get some nice photos. It would once have been an amazing place to stay when the hotel next door was open, I'd go... More

When you stand at the actual pass and look around you, it's hard not to be humbled by the work it took to get people and goods moving through that terrain. Fascinating history!

Enjoyed the old video detailing how the park staff dealt with avalanche threats along the highway during the winter.

We had park passes so entry was free. The small museum is worth just about that. However, it is not worth paying any admission. Its nice but not a destination.

quite interesting to view stuffed animal displays and have a good laugh at a 70's video about snow and avalanches (it was a good film but seriously, needs updating). Shame retail outlet had closed, and nearby restaurant was shut up, still you're supposed to stop to get the park pass and the views are good

The only thing you will find free at this location is the bathroom. You can not go in to see the museum unless you have a park pass or willing to pay admission. The staff were not very friendly and there was no where to purchase any type of food or liquid or gasoline. They should consider putting in vending... More

Just after summit (If travelling from Revelstoke) you see a collection of buildings on left. Two are derelict, but third is in good repair and is where museum is located. Unlike everywhere else take your parks pass with you rather than leaving it in the car as this gives you entrance. Best part are the staff who are really helpful.... More

Pulled in here only because it was raining. Weren't sure it was even open, as a lot of boarded up buildings around it. It has a small museum which was interesting and the staff were very helpful in giving ideas of what else to look at.
