  • My 15 year old grandson and I did a 2 night tipi say here in September, 2017. The tipis (there were 2) are nestled in amongst the trees a bit of a steep walk down from the main building (transport is ...  more »

  • The exhibition is great- very informative and well presented about the culture and history of the Blackfoot nations, in an area of great significance for them. We had not checked their website before ...  more »

  • I have been physically and mentally abused myself as a child and went to a Catholic high school and was taught by nuns, so I'm writing this with some background as being familiar with the past. The museum itself is worthwhile seeing; I was part of a large tour and our tour guide was great which we paid extra for. The displays were interesting and the Guide was very well informed without being depressing.The cost of the Guide was not something which I was aware of. It would of made more sense to me if the cost had been included in the cost of the admission or if we had been allowed to tip the guide. I'm sure he would have received the same monies. You aren't allowed to take pictures in the museum, (lower level). We weren't provided with any explanation. In all the museums I have visited throughout the Caribbean where slavery was involved, pictures were allowed. They looked at it as free advertising. The trip to restaurant would be something to be aware of ahead of time. You need to be very organized or I would skip altogether and have lunch somewhere else. Because First Nations have been oppressed for 400 years, any small requests are looked at as an extra or misbehaving. We had to pre-order on only to find those items were still not available. The gift shop, where you pay ahead of time for everything, is a long way from the dining room. I asked for a glass of water. There are no glasses, coffee cups in the dining room. The lady (older) became annoyed and said I would have to wait a while. She ran the tap for a good five minutes. I kept saying, "if you pass me the glass, I will go to the bathroom and get myself a glass of water." Finally she relented and poured me a glass of bottled water after she thought I was duly punished and my sandwich was suitably cold. The coffee had sat for a long time and I had to produce my receipt for the other lady and ask where the cups were. There were some Styrofoam cups hidden. The museum was worthwhile but lunch if you don't remember all, you will be punished.
  • Modern, beautiful and informative museum, with many interactive exhibits and displays, as well as an archive and library, gift shop, and cafeteria. It would take about two hours to do it justice. Worth the trip to expand awareness of Blackfoot history and culture.
  • The wait to pay for admission was pretty long and the powered doors at the entrance were not working. There were ants in the cafeteria as well. The exhibits were well put together but a lot of the monitors were not on. In particular, the Survival Teepee did not have any volume on the video about the stories of the residential school survivors. The gift shop would do well to have more souvenirs about the Blackfoot Crossing Historic Park itself. The lack of First Nations literature is also a missed opportunity.
  • Modern, beautiful and informative museum. Would take about two hours to enjoy. Has a cafeteria and gift shop. Lots of displays and exhibits.
  • Excellent museum. Worthwhile to get a guided tour of the exhibits. Tipi camping is a great experience.
