Thursday to Monday, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm`

Known as Châ Ûpchîchîyen Kudebi by the Stoney Nakoda, Canmore is defined by the rugged Canadian Rocky Mountain landscape that surrounds us and shaped by the culture, language and traditions of those that have called this place home for over 10,000 years. Located in the heart of our charming and historic downtown, the Canmore Museum’s collections, programs and exhibitions provide numerous opportunities to explore and experience our mountain landscapes, culture and community.


Located in the new Discovery Hall, From Coal to Community presents Canmore from a variety of perspectives: as an ancient way station for Indigenous cultures, as an integral part of the Canadian Pacific Railway’s Western expansion, as a 95-year historic coal-mining community, as an excellent venue to study and observe the geological history of the Earth, and as a modern and vibrant community that attracts artists and athletes from all over the world.

Fun Facts

On June 20 2013, the Canmore Museum and Geoscience Centre was hit hard by once-in-a-century flooding of the Bow River which damaged the museum’s exhibit hall. A new core exhibit was commissioned in 2014 as a result. It opened two years later on March 4, 2016.
