“experience the history of Canada's worst rockslide”

The Frank Slide Interpretive Centre highlights the rich heritage of the Crowsnest Pass amid the breathtaking beauty of the Canadian Rockies. The Centre is open all year and visitors will be greeted by friendly, knowledgeable staff who will share the fascinating stories of the Frank Slide through dynamic interpretive programs and presentations. State-of-the-art interactive displays and exhibits throughout the Centre focus on the infamous Frank Slide of 1903 - Canada’s deadliest rockslide. Visitors will experience what it was like to be in the coal mining town of Frank before, during and after the great rock avalanche. Learn why Turtle Mountain fell and if another rockslide will come down. Two award-winning, audio-visual presentations are shown throughout the day in the Centre’s 70-seat, high definition theatre. "On the Edge of Destruction" is a powerful, 30-minute docudrama that recreates the remarkable night the rockslide came down. "In the Mountain's Shadow" is a visually stunning, 25-minute presentation that vibrantly presents the history of the spectacular Crowsnest Pass from immigration through coal mining to rum running. A 1.5 kilometre trail winds through the rocks of the Frank Slide, giving visitors an up-close look at the awesome power of nature.
