Attraction details
Owner description: Four levels of interactive exhibits and two high definition award-winning shows tell the story of Canada's deadliest rockslide. On April 29 in 1903, 90 million tons of rock fell from Turtle Mountain and buried part of the coal mining town of Frank. Most of the 100 people in the path of the slide were killed. First-hand accounts, dramatic images and talented guides bring emotion to this remarkable and tragic event. Open daily year 'round.

It was really unique to visit Frank Slide. I was sort of speechless actually. It is a very tragic part of Canadian History being Canada's Deadliest Rock Slide, but at the same time it's very educational and I don't know any other place like this.
I didn't get a chance to go into the Interpretive Centre because it was closed by the time I arrived there, but the best views are from the boardwalk just beside the Interpretive Centre.

Feel free to view some of my pictures of Frank Slide and a video clip I took of the area:

This interpretive center is great and very well run. It really captures the story around Frank Slide and is in a very pleasant building. The area is gorgeous, and there are great trails to follow around the center. Be sure to journey through the boulders.
