“Temporarily out of commission”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

Due to the flood, they had a limited viewing-- with plans to be up and running in 2015. VERY nice staff there, though, that gave us the ins/outs of Canmore

“Great place to visit with kids”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2014

Could have a few more exhibits on mountain sports but the historical and geoscientific info presented is great. The movie is a must see.

“Grandchildren Loved It”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013

I took my grandchildren aged 12 and 10 during the school holidays. Museums can be daunting to kids, but the lady volunteer administrator gave them a clipboard with a treasure hunt questionnaire. They loved it and learned quite a bit in the process. There's plenty there for the grown ups too! Entry price is miniscule.

“Good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013

Nothing special, but cute.
Very small and just a few things that shows about the history of the city.
Is cheap. So is worthy.
