Buffalo Nations Luxton Museum, Banff Reviews
A great place to visit! We spent a very entertaining and enlightening hour here. There is free tea and coffee too which was very welcome. The museum tells the stories of plains First Nations peoples and the impact and legacy of their encounter with Europeans. It is well laid out with displays of clothing and objects along with an exciting use of VR headsets and video projection.
Historical and traditional outfits, tipi tents, historical information. This museum fills an important niche. The building is well constructed and quite solid, all is wood, hopefully fire protection is up to date.
Nice and serene place to visit. Rather small and I thought the ticket was a bit overpriced. You can be done here in less than 30 minutes. Parking is free.
This is a pretty neat little museum. If you aren't educated in Canada, there is an awful lot to learn. The iPads offer a lot of insight into incorrect First nations stereotypes. I'm glad that the proceeds go to the Buffalo nation and I REALLY appreciate that they are showing Elder in the Making on the TV. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is because not all of the souvenirs are actually made by First nations artisans. I feel like they are missing out on a cool opportunity for financial empowerment in First nations communities.
One of the attractions in banff. It tells a lot about buffalo tribe culture and traditions. A way to know about your heritage.
