Four levels of interactive exhibits and two high definition award-winning shows tell the story of Canada's deadliest rockslide. On April 29 in 1903, 90 million tons of rock fell from Turtle Mountain and buried part of the coal mining town of Frank. Most of the 100 people in the path of the slide were killed. First-hand accounts, dramatic images and talented guides bring emotion to this remarkable and tragic event. Open daily year 'round.
