Read Full Description »

The Banff Park Museum National Historic Site is closed to help protect the health and safety of visitors and employees.

The oldest natural history museum in western Canada, the Banff Park Museum is housed in an iconic 1903 log building in downtown Banff, Alberta. The museum holds more than 5,000 natural history specimens collected from the park around the early 1900s, everything from bees to bears! This turn-of-the-century taxidermy collection has mammals, birds, insects, and fish found in the Canadian Rockies.

The gorgeous architecture of the museum is an attraction in itself: huge logs of Douglas fir with large windows and lofty ceilings. While our indoor spaces remain closed, take a seat close by and admire the rustic architecture with Sulphur Mountain as a backdrop. You’re truly in the mountains now. Please check our website for updates.
