This lovely little museum gallery captured my heart when I first visited, and I visit it every time I go to Banff. I love the welcoming feeling of the building, and the friendly staff and the combination of heritage and art. The heritage show manages to combine a lot of history over a small space, from an old, old car to a modern rescue helicopter. The current show in the galleries is photography, not all that inspiring, but apparently it is mostly the work of high school kids who been through a photo program offered by the Whyte. It seems that the gift shop has been stocked with a lot more local product, which is a nice change after the chain stores and the tacky souvenirs on the main street.
