Fodor's Review

Western Canada's largest museum has three annual special exhibitions and more than 20 permanent galleries chronicling the history of the Canadian West. Don't miss the Mavericks Gallery, which has interactive displays that chronicle the lives of 48 dynamic and incorrigible Alberta natives. Displays of First Nations and pioneer artifacts examine the people, stories, and events that shaped the region. An Asian exhibit has Buddhist and Hindu sculptures dating from the 2nd century to the 18th century, and an extensive military collection includes medieval armor and samurai swords. The Nitsitapiisinni exhibit traces the story of the Blackfoot people in their own words through interactive displays, films, and artifacts. The café serves quick, fresh meals and snacks.
