Heritage Park Historical Village in Profile

Mission Statement: Connecting People with the Settlement of Western Canada

Heritage Park Historical Village first opened its gates on July 1, 1964. Since opening its doors, the Park has grown into one of Calgary’s premier tourist attractions and one of North America’s largest and most successful living history museums. Throughout the year, guests have the opportunity to interact with nearly 100 years of history.  Heritage Park’s exhibits span the early 1860s fur trade to the petroleum and automobile-dominated 1950s. It is the Park’s mission to preserve the history of the early West and to educate and entertain guests of all ages for many generations to come.


 

Our vision to 2020 - Recovery and Growth

From 2017 to 2020 Heritage Park will:

  1. Build our competitive position and reputation as a world-class attraction in the local, national, and international communities.
  2. Be a fiscally responsible member of the Calgary community without increased reliance on the City of Calgary operating grant.
  3. Broaden the reach of our education programs.
  4. Introduce technology such as Virtual Reality or Augmented Reality as elements of both marketing and programming.
  5. Seek significant support from corporations, foundations, and individuals through donations and sponsorships, and manage and grow new and continuing campaigns and an active endowment fund in support of our operating and capital improvement needs.
  6. Be a responsible employer, providing a safe, inclusive, and engaging work environment for productive employees and volunteers.
  7. Safeguard our assets and collections and continue to enhance our reputation as an accredited museum.
