|About these ratings|
Located just off Banff Avenue on Bear Street, the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies is the only museum of its kind. Named after its patrons, Peter and Catharine Whyte -- who were determined to enhance Banff's cultural life -- the museum is dedicated to portraying the art and culture of the Canadian Rockies. Here, you'll get a healthy dose of art, history and local folklore. If you're a fan of landscapes, you've come to the right place; the Whytes loved landscape paintings, both historic and contemporary.
The Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is about C$8 for adults and less for seniors, students and children. A cost-efficient family rate is also available.
