The Frank Slide Interpretive Centre is a captivating destination located in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, near the town of Blairmore, Alberta. This center serves as a memorial and educational site commemorating one of Canada's most devastating natural disasters—the Frank Slide of 1903.

The Frank Slide occurred on April 29, 1903, when millions of tons of limestone rock broke free from the summit of Turtle Mountain, burying part of the coal mining town of Frank, Alberta, and claiming the lives of approximately 90 people. At the Interpretive Centre, visitors can learn about the geological forces behind the slide, the history of the town of Frank, and the human stories of survival and loss through engaging exhibits, audio-visual presentations, and guided tours. The center also offers stunning panoramic views of the massive rockslide and surrounding landscape, providing visitors with a profound understanding of the scale and impact of this historic event.

Operating seasonally, the Frank Slide Interpretive Centre typically welcomes visitors from spring to fall, although opening hours may vary, so it's advisable to check ahead before planning your visit.
