This heritage site is a must see. We were welcomed to the site and advised to see the movie immediately since it was restarting in a few minutes. This film was an excellent overview and certainly provides a lot of information. As per the direction by the staff, we went up to the upper viewpoint and then came down through the various levels of the museum. There is a wealth of information and if you really want to read/experience everything and walk both the upper and lower trails, you will need more than 2 hours. The museum and upper trail are fully accessible. If you are able, also do the lower trail to provide a different perspective - it is not accessible to walkers/wheelchairs.

The customer service we got at reception was AWFUL. They gave absolutely no information and everyone was walking around the museum lost looking for stairs elevators, bathrooms and where the heck to start. While the information and subject matter are interesting, this museum is laid out like garbage. All over the place. Also, charging customers $2 for a guide to the interpretive trail after they just paid $15 is ridiculous. Just put some signs out explaining what's up or give the info for free online or something. Wouldn't recommend going here because of our poor experience.

Get the entire experience and start from the top and work your way down. Sometimes you forget about the history of our native people, and there is no better way to show that than this site. It is well done and well told. We were here 25 years ago and there has been several improvements that even dug deeper and displayed it better. I wished there was a gift shop and café open to extend the experience even longer. Great for families too. Only negative handicapped parking was non existent.

WE have been before quite a few years ago and the place just keeps getting better. We were with our grandkids (6 & 10) and they LOVED it. So much information and a beautiful facility. It is sooooo worth the trip....I would say it's a must see for everyone

We loved going here and learning about the history and how indigenous people used these natural cliffs in their hunting. The centre has displays as well as films. I’d start the tour by going to the top floor of the building, going outside to see the actual jump, and then proceeding through the centre from the top floor down. There are some good easy walking trails too but we missed doing them because we visited on a rainy day (it was a perfect way to spend a rainy day).
