Heritage Park Tours
Read MoreShow Less
Heritage Park in Calgary, Alberta, is an open-air historical and learning museum that gives visitors the chance to experience what life was like on the Canadian Prairies from 1860 to 1950. Costumed interpreters and many hands-on, interactive exhibits help you go deeper into your fun-filled encounter with the living past.
Canada’s largest living history museum is divided into several sections, with something to interest pretty much every visitor of every age. If you are there in summer, you won’t want to miss a ride on the midway rides, the steam train, or the wagons that criss-cross the park. The Historic Village houses many restored and original buildings. Gasoline Alley, open year-round, is where you’ll find vehicles from the golden age of the automobile.
If you plan to visit several times in a year, an annual pass is a great value.
