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.

Visitors to Calgary must see Heritage Park perhaps even twice in one visist as there is so much to see and do. It's a virtual trip in time into our Alberta Heritage. I would have given it a 5 rating but my one issue would be the entrance fee. If nto for that I would visit more often

For me it's the same old stuff as before. I used to buy the park pass. It's Interesting to visit a few times then it becomes the same old stuff. BUT NOW!

We had a great time at Heritage Park! Because it was April, much of the park was closed. We spent time at the lake playing with ice chunks and hours at Gasoline Alley. Our boys loved the cars, gas pumps and especially the play area! So well done. Great to visit any time of year!
