Banff Park Museum - Review
An extension of the Banff National Park, the Banff Park Museum is the oldest natural history museum of Western Canada. The displays of the museum include stuffed animals, plants and minerals found in the park. A landmark in present day Banff, the museum is a declared national historic site. Visited mainly for its taxidermy collection, you can come in close contact with some of the park’s formidable predators.

Banff Park Museum, Banff Reviews
Interesting place. It’s amazing they even have an animal older than Canada itself. It’s only 4$ per adult and it takes like 20’ to see everything. The people working there are very nice. I would recommend the visit and also the nice park by the parking.
My kids love it and so we do. It has all possible wild life (preserved body) in Banff area. You would be amazed to see one person Norman Sanson. For kid they have explorer program and following after completion of the book Ranger or Park official conduct oath ceremony. We were thrilled to do this activity.
A well designed museum, still preserving the ages old history and has provided the opportunity to see some of the different species of animals and birds. The different kind of sparrows and crows along with foxes was a very different experience. The tickets vary for the crowd and you can also do group bookings. On Canada day each year, well that is 1st of July ,the admission is free and the museum is open to your viewing. Enjoy it when you are there and don't miss the awesome presentation.
Fun excursion for kids with taxidermy samples of local animals. Museum also has a touching history of a dedicated individual trying to make it the best of its kind. Has a work book that will keep kids occupied.
Great price for adults, my kids were free. The kids especially enjoyed the xplorer pencil book and certificate at the end. Friendly, welcoming attendants too.
