Frank Slide Interpretive Centre

Museum & Historic Site

Learn how a catastrophic 90 seconds forever changed a tight-knit mining community in southwest Alberta. Overlooking the wreckage of Canada’s deadliest rockslide, the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre tells the tragic tale of the night Turtle Mountain crumbled. Learn how lives were destroyed when 110-million metric tonnes of limestone thundered onto miners’ cottages at the edge of town. Wander through exhibits and listen to the stories from survivors. Find out why the Blackfoot and Ktunaxa called Turtle the mountain that moves, and see the horror unfold in the gripping film On the Edge of Destruction. Be sure to head outside and explore the interpretive hiking trail that winds through the slide’s towering rubble. Effective December 13, 2020, the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre is temporarily closed.
