When you have the choice of everything from a thundering steam train to antique midway rides to beautifully preserved heritage buildings and homesteads, deciding what to do first isn't easy. Located in Calgary, Alberta, Heritage Park is Canada's largest living history museum, with hundreds of exhibits, rides, shops, restaurants and daily demonstrations and activities to keep the young and the young-at-heart captivated in the past. No two days at the Park are the same, so come back as often as you like for a history lesson you won't find in any textbook.

What'a fantastic place to spend half of your day. Don't plan 1-2h visit because you'll need to adjust your plans. It was brilliant! I've visited many similar places around the world but this was definitely one of the best. So many different things to see...More
