Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies
The Whyte Museum inspires discovery and wonder when people and the Rocky Mountains meet. We share stories and explore the culture shaped by this mountain landscape. Our founders, Peter and Catharine Whyte, were local artists and philanthropists who wished to offer a place where people could gather and appreciate the culture and beauty of the area. Come and explore our exhibitions, events, heritage homes, archives, library, and Banff’s only local book shop.
