History you can see, touch, smell and talk to.

Heritage Park features over 180 attractions and exhibits that reflect the challenges, lives and victories experienced by the generations responsible for the settlement of Western Canada. In many cases, the houses, stores and machinery at each exhibit are original. Thousands of Western Canada’s historical treasures have been generously donated and relocated to the Park.

As an accredited museum, Heritage Park is proud to preserve and share history in a way that lets visitors experience it with all five senses. Our costumed interpreters add another dimension to the immersive historical experience and bring our attractions and exhibits to life.

The Park’s attractions and exhibits span Western Canadian history from the 1860s to 1950s, and are situated in four locations around the Park:

  • 1860s Fur Trading Fort and First Nations Encampment
  • 1880s Pre-railway Settlement
  • c.1910 Prairie Railway Town
  • 1930s, '40s and '50s Gasoline Alley Museum and Heritage Town Square
