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
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.
Small but nice museum giving a good overview of the local fauna. A bit old fashioned in style but as entry is covered when you have the park pass, it was without regret.
This museum has a ton of great history regarding the birth of Banff National Park. I highly recommend checking this place out, especially if you have a national discover pass because you can get in for free.
The museum was a great history lesson in regards to the wildlife including birds and fish and insects. Also the history of the Banff Zoo no longer in existence. Very educational and if u present your national park yearly pass admission is free
