In case you don't see any animals on the road, this is a great alternative. There are probably specimens of every type of bird and animal in the park. The staff are very knowledgable and happy to explain what you are seeing.

This is a quaint museum in the heart of Banff that offers fantastic and interesting historical information on the animals that live in Canada and the local areas. The building is fantastic and is apparently older than Canada. Definitely one for those that love architecture!...More
