At the heart of Rogers Pass National Historic Site, the Rogers Pass Discovery Centre is designed to look like an historic railway snowshed. An essential place to start or end your day, the centre features a souvenir shop, a museum presenting the history of the area, and staff available to share their knowledge and latest updates year-round.

The Discovery Centre, accessible right off the Trans-Canada Highway is the only facility open during the early spring and winter when campgrounds, trails and day-use areas may still lie under a blanket of snow.


Rogers Pass was designated as a national historic site in 1971, due to its pivotal role in the construction and development of the main line of the Canadian Pacific Railway into a major national transportation corridor from 1881 to 1917. With the inauguration of the Trans-Canada Highway in 1962, it again formed part of a national route.

Located within the boundaries of Glacier National Park, this official designation includes the cultural landscape and resources associated with the former railbed of the Canadian Pacific Railway main line and along what is now the route of the Trans-Canada Highway.
