Banff National Park has a rich history of being a vibrant arts and culture scene. Scattered throughout our tiny mountain town are boutique galleries and emblematic museums. The famed Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, which sits just above the townsite, hosts numerous artists that draw inspiration from their surroundings.

Established in 1974, Canada House Gallery is dedicated to showcasing the best of contemporary Canadian art.

Situated in Banff, the heart of the Canadian Rockies, you are welcome to visit Canada House in your ski gear, cycling wear, hiking or cowboy boots. You’ll find an array of original paintings, stone and bronze sculptures, plus a selection of one-of-a-kind jewellery.
