Where the foothills of the Rocky Mountains meet the Great Plains, you will witness a method of hunting practiced by native people of the North American plains for nearly 6,000 years. The buffalo jump is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the largest, oldest, and best-preserved buffalo jumps in the world. A treasure trove of prehistoric artifacts and information about archeology, the centre's exhibits include a detailed look at the prehistoric life in the area, buffalo hunt ceremonies and the ecology of the region. The site also offers Blackfoot guides, educational programs, and a 60 seat cafeteria.
