The staff were helpful but the place was busy with a line up out the door for counter service. When I got served the guide was helpful and knowledgeable.

Definitely a good first stop in town. They helped mark maps with places to see wildlife and warnings about forest fire zones.

Get all the information about the National Park here. The staff are very helpful. The staff can help you with hotels, restaurants, attractions and hikes. They also have public washrooms which can be hard to find in Banff sometimes.

On the main street of Banff, make this your first stop. We got info on drives, eateries, and when the best sites are least busy. They also pointed us to an outdoor board with the Banff Center's concerts for the week. What a great thing to do in the evenings - some are even free!
