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.

It's super fun to go to the park and explore. Candy stores, ice cream, a fresh bakery, and more. The staff really make you feel like you are back in time. It's a little bit overpriced, but it's really fun when you are with friends...More

Heritage Park is a must for young families. Step back in time and explore how settlers to Alberta lived. The rides are fun and included in the price. Eat there or take a picnic and buy a treat at the bakery.

It's so nice to hear you enjoyed Gasoline Alley as the venue for your office Christmas party. We hope to see you again during the 2018 holiday season!

This visit was great, however the weather didn´t help. We were -20 C and as it is an open space, it was difficult to enjoy and some places were closed. For a family day it was great.

Not 100% sure, but pretty sure the answer is no. You would have to have special permission and probably be escorted.
