Nice break

Nice little spot with some great exhibits. History of the pass and local information. I heard that the video presentation is worth while... But we didn't take the time.

New things to learn about the area - history and highlights and off-the-beaten-track places to go. Helpful staff.

A very entertaining stop on Hwy. 1. Whether it involves viewing the train tunnel models or the native wildlife inside or the adventurers heading backcountry outside, this is a fabulous break from driving.

The Discovery Centre provides a bit for everyone. For the outdoor enthusiast they provide information to the back country (very helpful in the winter to ski tourers). Can be a good break spot if you are driving through and need a break. Also provides a great history lesson of the area.

They show a film here about how they control avalanches by shooting canons and there were several animals put on display by a taxidermist. The ranger was very nice and gave good information. The views from the parking lot are amazing.

We stopped here as it broke the journey up as we made our way down to Kamloops. It is well worth a stop. There is historical information as well as information about British Columbia Wildlife. It is sad to see the Glacier Lodge all boarded up and to read about its fate in the 1920s with the loss of the... More

This stop was more about a break from driving and a comfort break than wanting to see the Centre. We visited on 8/9/2016. The staff were very helpful and answered all our questions in detail. We bought the Annual Parks Canada Pass here. Enjoyed all the exhibits on the history and construction of the railway. Not a great fan of... More

I didn't know this but apparently the Canadian army shoots at avalanches to control their size and impact.

Very interactive and a good place to stretch and let the kids run a bit. Sadly the lodge, restaurant and gas station are all boarded up and left in a state of ruin - a travesty, really. But the Discovery Centre is still going strong and offers an amazing and informative rest stop. Note: entry counts as a stop in... More

The Discovery Centre is very basic. It has the expected diorama's of the area and requisite taxidermied animals on display but nothing special. There is no gift shop.
