We were searching for something new to do and, while having lived in Calgary over 10 years, we had never been to the Fort Calgary museum. The museum has two basic elements: 1) a room tracing the history of Calgary like a social media feed,...More
We arrived right at 10am for the Sunday brunch which was a great spread and delicious. There is a buffet option w an additional side order of eggs benny, omelette station, crepes or french toast. Desert was good. We had a guest with gluten free...More
Many Calgarians have already seen the exhibits in the museum at Fort Calgary, and for the price, they aren't a great value for visiting often. Newcomers or visitors may want to think about the indoor museum if interested in Calgary's fascinating history and don't mind...More
I visited Fort Calgary with friends from Australia. On entering, we were greeted well. However, the first display was about a display about the Indigenous Residential Schools. This was just on the news and none of us thought it appropriate that we were asked to...More

Thank you for visiting Fort Calgary as part of your time in Calgary. Thank you for your note about the cafe. We love that idea and we will consider it as we prepare for our renovation. Hope to see you again soon!

There was a lovely young man who wasn't a "real Mountie" was very happy to get photographs with the public. You should go to the Calgary Stampede and watch an event the RCMP perform. They are all in full uniform and are very happy to talk and have photos taken. They were in the stables with their horses. They also explain on what Occassions they wear full dress. Have fun
