Whyte Museum Of The Canadian Rockies - Review
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.

Whyte Museum Of The Canadian Rockies, Banff Reviews
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.
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.
I brought my Mother here because they advertise "History of the Rocky Mountains" display. My Mum (93) loves the mtns., & can NAME most individual mtns. from near & far. There advertising does Not say there's Admission $ Fee $, so we were surprised, & Not prepared. They have very good Historical Greeting cards at very reasonable $ cost $.
This is a hidden gem in Banff . What I liked about this museum is it gives you a concise overview of Banff's conception, the key players that had the vision to see what was here and to showcase it for the world.
Verizon good set of displays of indigenous life and activities from the late 1800s And an extensive collection of art with scenes from the Rockies Well worth 2+ hours.
