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.

When you come out of it you have a really different idea of your surroundings than when you go in and that means it's a good one. Small expo but complete and clear. Very friendly people. Do watch the video, it is really worth your time;

We made the stop and already had a park pass so didn't have to pay a fee. I really enjoyed looking at the various animals and models of the railway. Very unique and informative.

They have some very well done animal displays, which we enjoyed. The children there really seemed to like it. But it would sure be nice if there was someplace to purchase snacks and drinks. they have a water bottle refill station, but that's it.

Clearly tells the story of the development of the Rogers Pass. Not to be missed if going through for the first time.

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
