    This is a large museum with various elements. I was particularly gripped by the stories of the creation of the National park, and the various debates and challenges. The museum was free to enter when we visited, so this gave us an excuse to spend some money in the excellent book shop! I bought a book on the history of Banff national park which I was gripped by for the remainder of our stay in the park.

    Amazing architecture; very glad they saved this historic building. Nice collection of stuffed animals mostly from the park. Has a good story of preservation and conservation.

    This house is along a street with other historic houses, and it is worthwhile to stop in. In addition to a lovely arrangement of objects showing how this family lived, the garden is beautiful!

    Not too many people would go into a museum just to learn about the history of skiing, so it's a win-win that they have these informative displays in the Cascade Shops mall. It makes the time in the mall more interesting and the museum gets to tell its story. Banff has quite a storied history relating to skiing, and it was fun to take a dip in the information.
