Fort visit was much better than expected. The number and diversity of exhibits within the Fort required more time to view and read. Very enjoyable and educational. Highly recommend as a must do. Also the linked with the town centre heritage displays.

We visited the museum on the way to see the Head Smashed in Buffalo site. We enjoyed reading about the history of the RCMP and the settling of Alberta.

Really well made make-over from the original location of the fort, added with very nice addings from the very early period of (Fort) Calagary before WO II, An absolute 'must do' for everyone that is interested in the early years of Calgary!!

Fine museum/historic interpretive centre giving background and details on the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and their preceding organisations, in particular their role in the early contacts with the native Indian population and American liquor-runners. Maybe there is a bit too much embellishment on Canada's "nice...More

Very good exhibits in the museum on the history of the Mounted Police. They have uniforms of various eras. The musical horse parade was okay, but not fantastic. It is high school and college kids dressed as mounties doing some horse maneuvers in a small...More

They put on a cute little skit, geared more for children but was fun none the less. The musical ride was a nice surprise! There was lots of exhibits and the history lesson was quite interesting.
