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.

If you are enamored with early 20th century living and are a fan of Lucy Maude Montgomery, this is right up your alley! I was truly in my happy place here stepping back in time and learning about canadian history. Highly recommend it!

Ample parking - pity you have to pay for it! Once inside we enjoyed our day wandering from time capsule to time capsule. The staff are all in character and added considerably to the experience. There is a full size steam train that runs round...More

Not fully open. We enjoyed the Auto and Gas pump museum. Lots of Canadian history of the petroleum station and autos of years gone by.

Thank you for your kind review! We're happy you enjoyed Gasoline Alley Museum. We hope you'll have another opportunity to visit when the Historical Village is open, which is daily from Victoria Day weekend through Labour Day, then weekends through Thanksgiving.

It has been a number of years since we were there but we spent most of the day wondering around here. Lots of interesting things to see.

I get to go a lot, and I do. Not sure why I didn't do this review years ago. It's all fun and fascinating, but Heritage park is also a true way to get the look and feel of past times in Calgary and surroundings....More

My favorite spot in all of Calgary. I love the exhibits, the demonstrations. My son has a blast trying out new things and what kid doesn't love the fair ground. I could happily spend the day here.

About 60 members of our family went for a tour of this park. It is a great demonstration of Alberta's history and heritage. It is clean safe in a good value. We had with those children of all ages and they were well entertained.

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.
