Banff School Auditorium

Near the corner of Banff Ave and Wolf Street is the location of the old school auditorium, which was constructed in 1939. The building design emulated the architectural style used by Harold Beckett in the construction of the park gates and the Park Administration Building. The Banff School of Fine Arts became the summer tenant of the building. Well after the construction of the Tunnel Mountain Campus in 1947, the Banff School of Fine Arts (now The Banff Centre) continued to hold summer classes at the auditorium. In 1972 Parks Canada acquired the building and opened its information centre.

The Friends of Banff has a Retail Store at Parks Canada Information Centre
The Information Centre Retail Store offers materials to enhance visitor’s stay in the Park, specializing in natural and cultural history books as well as trail guides and maps.
