Overview

When you have the choice of everything from a thundering steam train to antique midway rides to beautifully preserved heritage buildings and homesteads, deciding what to do first isn't easy. Located in Calgary, Alberta, Heritage Park is Canada's largest living history museum, with hundreds of exhibits, rides, shops, restaurants and daily demonstrations and activities to keep the young and the young-at-heart captivated in the past. No two days at the Park are the same, so come back as often as you like for a history lesson you won't find in any textbook. Our operating season is from mid-May to early October each year.

The park was fairly empty due to rain, so there were no crowds, which was nice. All the guides dressed in period costumes were extremely knowledgable and accommodating. Another plus was that our lunch at the old Wainwright Hotel was actually very good!

Visited for a couple hours with the kids on our trip to Calgary. They enjoyed the fairgrounds (there's about 5 or so old rides), but would probably be boring for teens or older kids. Found the staff to be not that friendly / helpful. Kids...More

I believe the park opens on the May long weekend. However, Gasoline Alley is open, and has wonderful antique automobiles for viewing all year long. There is also a restaurant, and stores containing antique collectibles.
