Buffalo Nations Luxton Museum, Banff Reviews

  • 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.

  • The gift shop was nice. The museum was interesting and learned a few new things. If you are Canadian you should be aware of most of what’s in the museum already. But then again I’m often shocked by how little people do know.

  • The artifacts are awesome, but it is very Eurocentric in the presented narrative. The mannequins used look very intense and (in my opinion) offensive. The museum should probably focus on updating props and information to be more accurate and inclusive of the Aborigine community.

  • Pretty small museum for $10, not too much information, interesting taxidermy and wax statues though. Good for about a 20 minute walk through

  • A very humbling and interesting experience. There is so little on first nations culture and history in this area and this place felt like it did some justice to this substantial part of Canadian history. Interesting exhibits, videos and free coffee with admission including a little gift shop that unfortunately also offers some made in china souvenirs. All in all a very humbling experience. Recommended.
