Research & Collections

Through research and collection, the Whyte Museum seeks to make the human and natural history of the Canadian Rocky Mountains accessible and meaningful to all audiences. Research and collection enables the Museum to support scholarship of the Canadian Rockies.


Access will be by pre-booked appointments only – we cannot accommodate browsers or drop-in visitors.


Please email for further information. Long distance reference service, and online photograph reproduction orders are also available. 

The Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies acknowledges the Government of Canada Department of Canadian Heritage through the Museums Assistance Program for

their generous support.

Heritage Homes

The Heritage Homes form a unique and distinct part of the Whyte Museum’s Heritage Collection. They are aimed at preserving significant examples of Banff’s earlier architectural styles and homes associated with some of the area’s more noteworthy residents.


We currently have a virtual tour of the Whyte Home available.
