What is Heritage Park?
Heritage Park is a living history museum in Calgary that connects people with the settlement of Western Canada. Heritage Park is a registered charity.
Spanning 127 acres, Heritage Park encompasses three main areas:
Heritage Park Historical Village
The Historical Village depicts life as it was from the 1860s through the 1930s. Costumed interpreters help tell the story of the Canadian West, while guests can enjoy a variety of activities including steam train rides, a paddlewheeler boat and an antique midway.
Heritage Park Historical Village is open seasonally (late May to mid October).
Gasoline Alley Museum
Gasoline Alley Museum is a two-level, indoor museum that tells the story of the automobile and features a rare collection of vintage vehicles, gasoline pumps, signage, and more.
Gasoline Alley Museum is open year-round. Note: Gasoline Alley Museum is temporarily closed due to COVID-19 precautions.
Heritage Town Square (free zone)
The Heritage Town Square area includes several unique shops, the Railway Cafe counter service restaurant and the upscale casual Selkirk full service restaurant. This area is located outside the park gates; no park admission is required.
Heritage Town Square is open year-round.
When the Historical Village is open, access to Gasoline Alley Museum is included in your admission rate.
