What is Heritage Park?
Heritage Park is a registered charity and Canada's largest living history museum. Located in Calgary, and only 15 minutes away from downtown, Heritage Park provides an immersive experience that connects people with the settlement of Western Canada. The Park is seasonal with a living history Historical Village open from May to October, and a massive automobile museum open year-round.
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 antique steam train rides and sailings on a paddle wheel boat.
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. When the Historical Village is open, access to Gasoline Alley Museum is included in your admission rate.
Gasoline Alley Museum is open year-round. Note: Gasoline Alley Museum is temporarily closed due to COVID-19 precautions.
Heritage Town Square (no admission required)
The Heritage Town Square area includes four unique retail shops, an old-fashioned soda shop, the Railway Cafe, a counter service restaurant, and the elegant, yet casual Selkirk full service restaurant, which is open for lunch and dinner. This area is located before the Historical Village admission gates; with no park admission is required.
Heritage Town Square is open year-round.
