Apparently they are closed for the winter, but the highway signs don't say so

As a true traveller, if you see an interesting sign, you turn off and explore. Well, don't do that here: Although there are several very large, colourful signs on the highway suggesting it might be open, they aren't, and you'll be wasting a lot of time. You wouldn't guess a Cultural Centre would only be open seasonally. We did recently turn off the Trans Canada, over the cattle grate etc, only to find a lot of animal waste, likely horses, in the parking area and even on the sidewalk in front of the door. Not an inviting sight. In trying to find out more, it looks like they don't even have a proper web site (the one on the highway sign doesn't exist), so we don't know if this just a flash in the pan, or if they are a real operation. If you are looking for a true Aboriginal cultural experience, go to Head Smashed in Buffalo Jump, Blackfoot Crossing Historical Park, or the Tsuu T'ina Cultural Centre/Museum. Those seem to have gotten their acts together... It's sad this operation does not respect the travelling public enough to post "closed for the season" on all their big colourful signs.

Hidden stop which should not be hidden

The Chiniki cultural center is not easy to locate, it is behind the gas station/convenience store so if you stop to refuel at the Morley exit make sure to drive up the hill and around behind the gas station to find the entrance to the cultural center. The displays are great and the information is well laid out. The Stones restaurant was nice as well, I would recommend making a stop on your way to Banff National Park or on the way back to Calgary.

Both myself and my friend who came along to enjoy not only the Chiniki Cultural Centre but also to have lunch in the Stones restaurant are from the Banff and Canmore area, we are also tour guides and have always wanted to visit the Cultural Centre. What an experience I tell ya... from the moment we walked into the building the staff greeted us with much kindness and great service. While visiting the museum side of the facility we were very fortunate to have a local Stoney member by the name of Laine to give us in depth information and history of the Stoney people and of other nations to see where many differ in their ways of life. I just can’t say enough on how wonderful of an afternoon was spent at the Centre... we are looking forward to the Spring and Summer months when the members will begin hosting activities and story telling out in their tipis (the ones WE all see from our cars driving by on the Trans Canada Highway).
This location is a great place to bring your family of all ages!!!
