Grande Cache Tourism Centre

Located on Highway 40 and surrounded by stunning panoramic vistas of the Canadian Rockies, the Grande Cache Tourism & Interpretive Centre has much to offer the curious traveler, newcomers to our community and long-time residents. We are more than just a tourism information centre.

The Grande Cache Tourism & Interpretive Centre can provide all your tourism information needs; our friendly staff encourages you to explore our history and culture. We host community programs and events; and provide school and special group tours.

The Grande Cache Tourism & Interpretive Centre showcases the fascinating history of the area through exhibits and displays featuring ice age artifacts, dinosaur tracks, Aboriginal heritage and fur trading, full animal mounts, tree and geological descriptions and local industry.

There is also the Bighorn Gallery Gift Shop, the Esson Gale Art Gallery, and space available for meetings and conferences. Make sure to save time to tour the Bird’s Eye View Park featuring interpretive trails and gazebo style picnic areas, outside of the Centre.
