This info centre truly depicts the history of the Rogers Pass. Many great displays and the staff are very informative and extremely helpful. Well worth the time to stop.

This place is great. However there is a strong chance you will miss it. It is located in a parking lot also housing a hotel which is abandoned. The area looks like it is under construction. We drove right by thinking we were in the wrong place. The discovery centre is a one storied building with a "green" roof meaning... More

Pay the $6 per person for a 24-hour National Parks pass in order to view all of the displays in the visitor centre. Displays and written signage tell the extraordinary story of the men who forged the path through the mountains against incredible odds. Be sure to spend time watching the documentary films about the Pass and Avalanche management systems... More

I remember Rogers Pass as a kid a few decades ago. I was so impressed by the blue roofed buildings out in the middle of nowhere in the mountains. We always stopped for something to eat and to go through the gift shop. Now it is a run down boarded up eye soar. There is nothing there accept this small... More

Museum is very interesting and quite a lot to learn about the area. Our granddaughter particularly liked the animal poo drawers.

Isolation personified. Changing weather conditions. Bring your wardrobe - bikinis to faux fur. Clouds can descend in the area with no advance warning, so keep your cameras and binoculars at the ready. Apart from getting a park pass and looking around, no real reason to stay. A hotel was established there in 1963, undergone numerous change of owners until about... More

This is one of the better park info centres in BC. Staff were excellent. It's like a mini museum of the creation of this pass. We saw an informative film of winter avalanche prevention.

Not a beautiful spot with a decrepit inn beside it but the information inside is interesting re bears, Avalanche control and the pass itself. Good bathroom break on the trans Canada. Staff were knowledgeable and friendly

We stopped here because of the rain and also get a National Park pass. To our pleasant surprise, there was a movie about the Avalanche Control Program, how research is being done, and how the army has to shell the snow-cladded mountain sides to prevent avalanches. Rogers Pass has the highest incidence of avalanches in the country! There's also a... More

On outward Journey it was pouring with rain and roadworks made it almost impossible to stop. On the way back super sunny but limited time. This area blew me away on opening the sunroof at one point I could see the mountains on both sides of the valley at once, impressive. The center was not well advertised and needs more... More
