Worth a visit for tips on what to do in the Park

Well worth stopping off here to learn about the park and to get tips on things to do. We found the exhibits interesting and staff helpful and friendly.

The Discovery centre is unfortunately positioned between two derelict buildings, so the beauty of the new structure with its sod roof goes by unnoticed. That is until inside the building. There are good displays that give a brief history of the area. Some instruction on the wildlife, the history of the surveyors, the struggle of the railway construction is all... More

An awesome stop, if you need a washroom break, and interested in trains. Excellent models depict the two rail tunnels under Rogers Pass, as well as great old photos. A few other displays relevant to the National Park. A very interesting stop. Downside: used to be an excellent hotel/restaurant beside the Visitor Centre...it is now closed. No food available at...

If you cross Rogers pass you must stop here and see all about the region you are in. There are several informative videos to watch.

We came over Rogers Pass from the Golden end of the road. The highway is safe in good weather and the views would have equally breathtaking if not for the rain. The discovery centre provides a glimpse of how things were and how hard the pioneers who made this pass possible had to work.

I drive the Rogers Pass on a regular basis, and have for many years. The fact that the hotel closed a few years ago is a shame. The gas station charged 60% more per litre for gas than everywhere else, and has been closed for years, but the state of the building is downright hazardous - the tin is peeling... More

Stopped here to buy park passes. The facility was understaffed and the wait so long, we left and bought tickets at Cedar Boardwalk. Area is in dire need of improvements. Deserted lodge is an eye sore.

Neat place, the movie on avalanche control was very good. We were disappointed later in the trip, that the Rangers didn't tell us about the kids explorer programme

My first trip in BC. Stopped at Rogers Pass Discovery Centre on our way to Banff, Alberta. This is an interesting stop to go in and check out the history in the area. Outside you have a great view of these mountains which are prone to Avalanches. There are cannons on the property which blast the snow off the mountains... More

So run down compared to when were there 10 years ago. Construction everywhere, not much to see inside.
