We go to the Bar-U once every couple of years. It's about a 90 minute drive from our NW Calgary home (an hour from the sout side of the city) - and it's through some stunning Alberta scenery all the way down. There are hands on exhibits, hot campers coffee over an open fire.... This is a working ranch. Horse drawn wagon rides and an introduction to how it was one of the biggest Percheron ranches in the early 1900's are all of interest. Take a camera and be prepared to be engaged for a good couple of hours at least. Cafeteria is pretty good too, homemade soups, stews & baking - and fairly reasonable compared to some of the other touristy attractions.
