This stop was more about a break from driving and a comfort break than wanting to see the Centre. We visited on 8/9/2016. The staff were very helpful and answered all our questions in detail. We bought the Annual Parks Canada Pass here. Enjoyed all the exhibits on the history and construction of the railway. Not a great fan of... More

I didn't know this but apparently the Canadian army shoots at avalanches to control their size and impact.

Very interactive and a good place to stretch and let the kids run a bit. Sadly the lodge, restaurant and gas station are all boarded up and left in a state of ruin - a travesty, really. But the Discovery Centre is still going strong and offers an amazing and informative rest stop. Note: entry counts as a stop in... More

The Discovery Centre is very basic. It has the expected diorama's of the area and requisite taxidermied animals on display but nothing special. There is no gift shop.

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
