THINGS TO DO:
Museums & Historic Sites
At Calgary’s living history museum, learn how Western Canada’s pioneers, fur traders and First Nations lived more than 100 years ago. Immerse yourself in their stories and experiences among the authentic buildings, tools and artifacts from the era. Friendly costumed interpreters draw you completely into the lives of the people who built the West. Feel like a settler heading to new adventures on the steam train, talk to the captain on the paddlewheeler and ride a horse-drawn wagon through the town, farmland and pre-railway settlement. Connect with the people of the day through up-close demonstrations of how they made the things they needed. History lives here.
