First off it’s good to note during the slow season you get more one on one time to talk to the staff and enjoy a slower pace. There are lots of interactive displays and the views are fantastic. I have never been before but it...More

Having driven into this area the previous evening and read all the information about the disaster a visit here was a must do. We arrived quite early before the centre was open so we walked the trails around the centre reading the information boards as...More
The exhibits and videos did a great job telling of the story. The rocks that remain are a sight to be seen! I left feeling sad of those buried under the rocks but happy they are keeping their story alive! My 11 and 12 year...More
An interesting place to visit to learn about the slide. There are a few walks through the surrounding area including the slide remnants. The only cost is if you want to go into the Interpretive Centre building and view the information and watch the video(s)....More

Took the kids to the interpretive center to see what it was about. Extremely interesting. An awful piece of Alberta history but really enjoyed the videos and all the information available. Hiked the interpretive path through the rocks which was quite beautiful

Hello, glad you're planning to visit! Inside the Centre there are four levels of exhibits and two HD movies, each roughly 30 minutes to watch. You'll want to allow at least an hour to 1.5 hours. Outside the Centre there are walking paths with storyboards, and browsing these may take 30 minutes, depending on your level of interest. There is also a 1.5 km trail through the Frank Slide that takes about 30 minutes to walk, but longer if you take the self-guided brochure and stop and look at features. If you do everything, you might be here for a few hours.
Hope that helps. Let us know if you need more information.
