What is the recommended amount of time to allot for a visit? We are stopping during a road trip and want to make sure we have time to visit.
Thank you for your questions. Most visitors find that about 1.5 hours is sufficient to visit our exhibits.
We also have an outdoor interpretive trail that takes you below the cliff and through the campsite area. Most people find an hour is enough time to enjoy the hike,
We do have a cafe open May -September (for 2017) if you wish to enjoy a meal onsite.
We hope that answers your question.

We were there about two hours. Plenty to see and read as you make your way through the visitor centre.
We probably spent about an hour.
One to two hours would be lots of time, unless your family is very into learning about Aboriginal culture. There is the cafe for a bite, and outdoor picnic if you're into that. The drive from the highway to the museum is about 15 minutes each way, and there is a stop in between if you want to see an "eratic" which is a rock dropped there by a glacier. Nearby Fort Macleod is a beautiful little town, well worth some time as well!
