Tracks through Time

Journey through time from the Victorian era to present day. Celebrate Historic Places Days as we share the story of the museum’s renowned citizen scientist, Norman Sanson, by participating in special activities like museum tours and arts & crafts.

Explore the oldest natural history museum in Western Canada. This 1903 landmark building is an outstanding example of the rustic Banff Style of architecture. A “museum of a museum” that allows visitors to step back in time and learn about an early approach to natural history interpretation. This turn-of-the-century taxidermy collection continues to enchant visitors to Banff National Park, while sating their curiosity about the mammals, birds, insects and fish found in the Canadian Rockies.
