Yet another comprehensive museum at Banff National Park, the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies is where you’ll be inspired and awestruck by the power of the Canadian Rockies. Almost a century old, the museum focuses on the history, culture and art of the Canadian Rockies. Aimed at maintaining an excellent international reputation, their exhibits are every changing; the permanent exhibits focus on the people who literally forged their way through the mountains, made homes and decided to settle here.

Check out the adjacent archive with photos that tell the tale of history of the town and park. Ask for a pamphlet if you’re embarking on a self-guided tour.

  • A treat for visitors to Banff that helps complete the picture of who was instrumental in developing the area. Amazing art gallery, artifacts on mountain climbing and rescue, area development, early settlers. 2 early homes on the premises, not open to the public, scheduled tours might be available or arranged.

  • Interesting but average content museum. Recommended a look though.

  • If you're not looking for a huge 2-3 hours visit museum such like us, then this is the perfect one ! All the information and objects are enough and perfect to understand the Rockie's history.. We had a 25min explanation from a guide which was as well very interesting.

  • Nice small museum. Have been going to Banff for 40+ years and was sorry I missed this gem. The tour guide we had was knowledgeable and I loved that it was only a 20 minute tour which left us lots of time to explore on our own.

  • A fun place for art as well as history of the bow Valley.
