  • This is one of the oldest natural museums built in 1903. It served as the best example of surviving rustic architectural design found in early 1900. This is an iconic cultural collection for over 115 years! The garden is also a great photo site for a wedding. One of the must-go sightseeing point in Banff, Alberta

  • Very nice museum. Allison was working and was very nice and informative. Was very cool to see all the native animals in our country/Rockies. Recommend going to check out.

  • Great historical landmark. The staff was so nice and willing to tell us so much detail about the museum. I didn't understand it at first but once you ask questions, it's honestly quite an interesting place!

  • Been here many times over the years. Amazing collection of animals, birds and insects as well as an assortment of other eclectic things donated from the area over the years. I never tire of visiting and finding new treasures to learn about that I have not noticed on previous visits.

  • 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.
