Create an itinerary including Banff Indian Trading Post
Shop for Indian crafts and souvenirs at a store more than a century old at Banff Indian Trading Post. Part store, part museum, this site offers a wide choice of genuine Native Canadian handicrafts, sterling silver jewelry, and pottery. You can purchase American Indian wear as well, like moccasins, mukluks, and fur clothes. The shop showcases lots of taxidermy crafts exhibited along the walls representing local wildlife. Ask the owner of the shop to show you the Merman--a creature of legends that is a mixture of animals; it's located in a tank in the back room and can be easily missed.

  • I always like visiting this store. Easy to get in and out of with parking right out front. Also easy walk from main st if you didn't want to move your car. Friendly staff. Always something new to see but also the reliably fun quirky stuff (Merman) is always there to show visitors.
  • Amazing store with so many beautiful and unique items. So many stores in Banff tourist area have all the same items... not here. Handmade art, dream catchers, clothing, shoes, mugs, cards and so much more. I left with several items I adore! May favourite store in Banff!!!
