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.

We've been to a lot of historical parks and, quite frankly, Calgary's Heritage Park is a tier above the others. The automotive museum is excellent. The steam locomotives and trains take you back to a historical time. All of the historical buildings are amazing and the staff and volunteers are excellent. This facility, beyond being fun, does a great job... More

Heritage Park is a fantastic way to spend the day if visiting Calgary. It's just like stepping back to the turn of the 20th century. There are many exhibits to see , enter and read about. A steam train will take you around the park or a paddle wheeler will take you around the water. My wife and I booked... More

Cinema like settings taking you back to streets and shops of the late 1800s/early1900s life style. There is not just a post office or pastry shop, but also a real news press, steam engine train, bank, carpenter, houses, hotel, the staff wearing and walking the century old European-North American culture.

This is one of those hidden gems. The Heritage Village is simply marvelous and all the staff are equally wonderful and knowledgeable about the era. The train is great and then there's Gasoline Alley.. You really need almost a full day to see all that's here.

From a paddle wheel boat cruising Calgary's Glenmore reservoir (try the jazz cruise on a summer evening) to a restored steam engine, to the historical village (try the ghostly tour) this is a fantastic kid friendly place. Not to forget their collection of antique cars. The Selkirk Grille is open year round with excellent service and food. As a destination... More

It's a great place to r & r for a hour or the whole day. The staff and the food is very good with comparable prices. I go there on my own a lot, in July, I brought a company from out of town and a couple from England who are returning this summer. I feel very relaxed when I'm... More
