Discover Heritage Park
Plan your visit to Heritage Park and figure out the best way to explore the Park with the time you have available!
We Make History Memorable
When you visit Heritage Park, you step back in time.
Let your imagination wander as you experience the progress of Western Canada unfolding right before your eyes. All just 15 minutes from downtown Calgary.
You can guide yourself around the Park with our map or interactive Driftscape wayfinding app. Chat with our costumed interpreters, who bring Heritage Park’s attractions and exhibits to life with great stories and demonstrations. Spanning western Canadian history from the 1860s to the 1950s, you’ll experience our past presented in an immersive, unique experience.
Learn, Laugh and Linger
We recommend staying at least four hours when you visit Heritage Park. This will give you and your family time to explore several attractions in our 127-acre park, dine at one of our delicious restaurants, ride our famous train and hear some really good ghost stories.
But once won’t be enough. We invite you to return all season long with a Heritage Park membership. It pays for itself in less than three visits!
What to Expect
There’s a reason we’re Calgary’s top tourist attraction. Our living historical village isn’t just one museum. It’s a whole town – and then some.
Wear comfortable shoes, prepare for the day’s weather, bring a stroller or wagon for the little ones and get set to wander back in time. You choose which exhibits to visit, where to enjoy a meal or a snack (we love the cinnamon rolls made fresh in our bakery) or how many times you ride the Caterpillar at the Midway.
We’re always adding new attractions, updating existing ones and hosting special events. There is truly something for everyone at Heritage Park.
