The visitor center for the Unesco World Heritage Site, Head Smashed in Buffalo Jump is one of the best I have been to. Great interpreted scenes from history and I really liked how they projected stories on large rocks around the different rooms. It is 4 stories as you have to go to the top to access the trail to the cliffs. And just like the Buffalo, you go down through the museum to the end.

Our first trip to Canada visiting family and we had a ride out to this place. Full of interesting history about Native American's and their way of life, and how they hunter Buffalo.

What really made it awesome was speaking to Little Leaf who answered some other questions and gave us some interesting facts filling in some of the gaps. Such a lovely person. All I can say is that if the staff asks you if you have any questions then please do ask, as they are so proud to tell you more about their ancestors and culture.

The views are also fantastic and we could see the mountains. Absolutely stunning.

Thank you Little Leaf πŸ’™

Tucked into the landscape, the centre is beautifully designed for you to start at the top and work your way down. Displays are eye-catching, interesting and very informative especially an area where the text is projected on the rocks.

I highly recommend taking the hike into the valley to fully understand the site, but to also appreciate the wide variety of plants in the area. We were fortunate to see two archeology groups at work and to chat briefly with some of the members. Why is the parking lot at a lower level? To not disturb the potential archaeology.

My second visit, highly recommended.

What an incredible space. You can feel the power of the land and the history while walking the outdoor trails. I am so glad I made the drive to experience this.
