#2 of 20 in Museums in Calgary
Discover the history, victories, and tragedies of Canada's army, navy, and air force at The Military Museums. The museum collects, preserves, and exhibits items connected to the history of the armed forces--from the Northwest Rebellion in 1885, through World Wars I and II, and up to current-day peacekeeping operations. Walk through a war trench, and witness a bomber squadron's mission over enemy territory. Make sure to see the large mural comprised of 240 individually painted tiles depicting war-related images. Step back to see a larger image in honor of the Canadian forces. Work out when and for how long to visit The Military Museums and other Calgary attractions using our handy Calgary day trip website .

  • Absolutely love this place - well worth the membership and the time - if you can spring it donate more per year and get access to wonderful events about military history. Learn about all the amazing things soldiers and members of our military have done for our country. Never see the same thing twice even if I go through only one section. Great place to bring the family or a friend and especially a date. I even go by myself and am never disappointed and always treated well no matter how many questions I have. SUPPORT it's so affordable for a yearly membership!
  • Amazing experience, outstandingly preserved artifacts. Beautiful memorial for those who have served our country for our freedom. Amazing location for Remembrance day ceremonies, super busy though so arrive early to get a good seat/spot. Just a great day to spend learning about our history, gain insight and knowledge and reflect on our past sacrifices and present gifts.
  • This was a great place to spend the day! My son and sister loved every bit of it making us stay for almost 6 hours! Great family experience.
  • A must see when you're in Calgary. Excellent displays and programs. Make sure to attend Summer Skirmish in June!
  • The displays are amazing and well done. They rotate different features regularly so there is always something to see. I am here at least once a month. The staff are polite and knowledgable.
