This museum is Banff-sized - small, but incredible. If you have a couple of hours the next time you are in Banff, put this on your list. There is an historical exhibit on the history of the area that is packed with interesting information and will enthrall you. There is a lot of interactive opportunities with audio and tactile experiences (and cool photo ops). Special, time limited exhibits are set up in the other areas. The museum shop is also a treat to browse through - you will find something to take home for sure. A tip - if you are an auto club member (AMA, CAA) there is a discount off the already reasonable admission fee.
