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.

Great place to stop on the pass, the guys have lots of info to give out. Too bad there aren't more amenities here.

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

As we traveled in Canada we took a day trip to Revelstoke, BC and stopped at the Discovery Centre at Roger's Pass. The views here were worth a photo and the center was very good. There were a lot of displays of stuffed animals that you would find in the park along with a movie about encountering bears for those... More

Nice museum that gives a good flavour of the area and wildlife - particularly liked the models portraying the railroad. The theatre is a 'must do' but it is not well signed and the film is a bit dated but nonetheless gives a good feel for the challenges faced in winter.

I learned about the flora and fauna and loved all the historical displays of the Glacier Park Hotel and CP Railroad.

After a tour of some of the major parks in West-Canada, this is a very elaborate exhibit of the area's wildlife. The video on bear encounters was, again, a bit freaky (we never saw one at close range in 3 weeks' time), but I guess it's better to be safe than sorry. Make good use of your parks pass and... More

Was a recommended stop by our B&B host. Has some neat displays on local animals, history and topography. Admission is free if you bring in your National Park pass. The surrounding views are very nice. There is a trail head for Balu Pass in the parking lot.
