Unfortunately we only had 2 hours before leaving to the airport. The museum is one of the best military museums I have ever been to. Lots of displays, artifacts and dioramas. A must while visiting Calgary.

Excellent presentation and information on Calgary's military history. Informative , realistic dioramas complete with artifacts. All services represented, but mostly army related with a superb collection of air force jets. Staff are many times Vets or people who know their history. Well worth a visit...More

As an immigrant from another country to Canada, we have learned some facts about wars. After the visit to the museum, we found something different from what we have known. Things always have two sides. You will never know the truth unless you are there.vivid...More
