The Whyte Museum in Banff is a premier venue that, not only houses museum displays but has one of the largest collections of artifacts and documents in Alberta, Canada. The Whytes were extremely talented artists who for decades painted Banff, the Rockies, and many other parts of the world. They also collected works by other talented artists, which fill the galleries of this wonderful museum. On this tour, I will also take you to the gallery dedicated to artifacts of the Native People and Europeans who settled in the area. The museum collects, preserves, and exhibits materials related to the cultural heritage of the Rocky Mountains of Canada, making them available for education as well as research. Banff is so much more than just nature!
Pamela has always loved the outdoors, and is fascinated by all aspects of the natural world. She worked at The University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa, and went on many field trips, which enhanced her knowledge of birds, animals, insects, frogs, geology, plants and trees. If not outdoors, her nose was always in a book, learning more about the world and it's fascinating places, animals and people. Since moving to Canada, Pamela immersed herself in this totally different environment. She loves to share this knowledge with other people to help them appreciate and understand what they see.
