Frequently Asked Questions

How does the new ticket system work?

In order to accommodate physical distancing, guests will be asked to pre-purchase tickets online for a specific time slot. These tickets will indicate a one-hour window in which you will need to arrive at Gasoline Alley Museum. Once inside the Museum, you are welcome to stay for the remainder of the day. 

I'm an annual pass holder. Do I need a ticket?

Yes; annual pass holders must reserve a ticket time in order to visit. No extra payment is necessary; during the ticket checkout process, you will enter your annual pass number (found on the back of your annual pass card; begins with "MC"). This will allow you to reserve tickets free of charge. 

I'm an annual pass holder, but I am having difficulty reserving tickets. Help!

Ensure that the category of ticket(s) you're trying to reserve matches the category of the annual pass; for example, a senior pass can only be used to reserve a senior ticket.

If you're still having difficulty, please give us a call at (403) 268-8500 or email

Please note that newly-purchased annual passes will not yet be active in our online system. To reserve a ticket with a newly-purchased annual pass, please call (403) 268-8500.

Do I have to wear a mask?

The City of Calgary’s COVID-19 Face Coverings Bylaw (effective August 1, 2020) requires the use of face masks in public indoor areas and vehicles.

As Heritage Park strives to provide a safe and enjoyable environment for our guests we ask that all guests wear masks while in our buildings, on our train, or in areas where 2m physical distancing outside your cohort is not possible. Our staff will be wearing masks for everyone’s protection.

When does the Historical Village re-open?
