“Stop here first!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Terrific place....National Park rangers available to help you on one side, and Banff Information people on the other. We got help with hiking/driving ideas, and a helpful ranger gave us detailed info on our drive from Calgary to Glacier N.P.
We paid our park fees there too.
Always a good idea to stop in one of these places if you have limited time in an area, so you know what not to miss.

Staff were friendly and informative. We were quickly able to get the updates we needed on trail status etc. Great short video in the small theatre. good clean restrooms.Only issue was the shop was frequently closed when we called in.

Advice, maps, tickets, directions are all available here. A great resource. If you are looking for help, this place is located in the middle of town and is great way to get a start on fun activities.

“very busy place with long lines”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

compared to the visitor center in jasper, the banff information center is much smaller, does not sit on nice grounds, is very busy with a long wait to get information, and generally feels more like going to a bank and waiting for a teller rather than going to a visitor center to get tourist information
