“Great display”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We went in to kill some time but then wished that we had done it earlier as there was so much to look at. The displays are extremely well done and we felt that we could have spent more time there.

“Great place to learn about Banff wildlife”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

This is a wonderfully old-fashioned museum with stuffed animals and birds that will give visitors an excellent introduction to the Banff wildlife. If you have a Parks Canada Discovery Pass, which you need to get into Banff National Park, you get in free.

“Cool stuff (pun intended).”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Interesting to see how they studied animals back in the day. Impressive collections of taxidermy animals. Still trying to figure out how they stuff a humming bird.

“Very interesting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

This is not big, but it has lots to see in the way of the animals of the area. The building, itself, is an amazing work of wooden art. The young woman at the desk was very helpful. It is next to a lovely park. The kids will love this one.

“A great piece of Rockies history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

It was great to wander amongst the many species of animals found in the Rockies and enjoy the well preserved old building that contained them.
