Good place to pickup info. There is a charge to go in the centre but free if you show your Park Pass Good history of the park and videos of bears and avalanches. Clean washroom inside. A nice place to take a break and quick snooze.

Lots of information and knowledgeable staff plus the view from the Center was amazing. We enjoyed the break and the facilities were well kept.

National Park staff provide helpful answers to a flood of visitors who stream by without experiencing the incredible beauty of the place.

This is a good place to stop and take a break from the vehicle. The building is interesting in itself and it presents a good overview of the geology and natural history of this magnificent mountain world. There is an entry fee, but I can't remember what it is. You can also buy your pass for Banff National Park here.

On these spots where you always say your going to stop at, well I finally did today. A good place to learn the history and gain information on Rogers Pass. A brief stop will do, it's rather sad though that Parks Canada can't find someone to open up the old restaurant there, that has been closed for a number of... More

We visited this wonderful attraction on Canada Day. Lucky for us it was free entry to celebrate - making it all the better! However, even to pay (cannot remember the usual charge) would be worthwhile. There is an info film on bears in the wild, which had the kids engrossed, and plenty of stuffed animals with touch and feel furs,... More

We stopped here on our travels to have a break and see what was in the area. The Centre was open but the other buildings around it were still closed from winter. A little disappointing but still worth the stop. The rangers were very helpful and informative. Washroom facilities are available.

The staff at the center was actually the first unfriendly Canadian we have met so far on our roundtrip in Canada... We came for some backcountry skiing and was very disappointed with the information we got. Actually, we didn't get any information at all, beau they couldn't tell us anything because of liability reasons... "We don't know your skill level".... More

I was a young kid when they first built this building. It is a very unique building with grass on the roof. Inside, there is a bit of a musuem that is accessible with a park pass. IT seems to me that things have been removed from this place over the years, I was sure it used to show and... More
