  • The buildings are well preserved and it was nice to have an interpreter in the cook house while was making cookies in the cook house. We went during the chore horse competition and it was neat to watch and they had a pamphlet telling you about it. The book that you get when you go in is very detailed and will visit again in the future.
  • Interesting place and friendly explanations about the most authentic and amazing ranch in Alberta. Living history of those who contributed to the most amazing world of cowboy rodeo exhibition. You will spend a beautiful day in this historic place.
  • Beautiful location - nice grounds & good interpretative centre with helpful & interesting local staff. Bar U celebrates the history of Ranching in Canada.
  • Had a wonderful tour of the site on a wagon! Beautiful landscape.
  • Excellent get away from busy life. Specially Canada day.
