When Bison Ruled the Plains

On the bank of the Bow River in downtown Banff, this museum (established in 1952) celebrates the buffalo and those First Nations tribes that depended upon them. Dedicated to the appreciation, demonstration and display of the cultures, traditions and values of those tribes, the exhibitions include clothing, tipis, quillwork and hunting equipment centered on buffalo hunting and the cultures that arose from that activity.

In addition to the traditional exhibitions, the museum has also added new programs. They now offer fashion shows, indigenous and multicultural markets and, recently, powwows. If you're visiting Banff, this wonderful little museum is well worth a trip.
