Things to do
Western Canada’s oldest natural history museum, Banff Park Museum offers visitors a chance to browse some 5,000 vintage specimens – from stuffed bears to minerals and plants. A visit to the “University of the Hills” is a great way to get an up-close look at Banff wildlife and see how natural history was interpreted a century ago.
The Banff Park Museum is a favourite among kids who can join the Xplorers Club, completing a checklist of fun activities to earn a free souvenir. The Xplorers Club is especially geared for kids aged 6-11.
