“Well Maintained”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

I really enjoyed going to this museums. It has mannequins of wide variety of wild life species. It has a discovery room where you can touch thorns of animals and has a reading room too, if you wana grab any of their books and read. You not get parking if you go in this season.

“identify animals”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

A nice selection of local (and other) animals are carefully stuffed and labeled. It is a good way to see the various sizes of animals you would otherwise not want or be able to observe up close. This attraction is free with the Parks Canada Discovery Pass; there is a slight charge otherwise.

“A terrific little museum that gives an insight into the early days of Banff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

A gem of a museum, set up in the same way as it was in the early 1900s when visitors first flocked to the area. Staff are exceptionally welcoming and it's terrific value. There are more thrilling places to go in Banff, but I would still put it on the "Must Visit" list.

“It Was Closed!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We tried to go there during the day on Saturday, March 16th but it was closed. Too bad as it was very cold that day and needed to warm up after our walk.

“Great Museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Loved this museum, it provided a broad spectrum of exhibits from the locality and was well laid out. I find stuffed animals a little creepy but they are in most museums so I moved fast through that section!
