The Military Museums, Calgary

(4.8/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
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. Put The Military Museums into our Calgary travel itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Great museum and awesome war relics. When you come in, be sure to look for the Sherman tank below as well as the other tanks outside. The main museum is fantastic and the new cold war exhibit is phenomenal. Even though I work in the cold war exhibit I think this museum is spectacular.
  • Liked it a lot got to see what my 2 grampas did in ww2 i would come back again came from ontario to Calgary
  • Really great. They are currently looking at a remodel and it was a fun idea to vote on best best preference. We were there for the Summer Skirmish and that was a really fun day. Good idea and lots of information.
  • First class museum. Amazing displays give you a real sense of what it was like to be in some of those situations. One visit is not enough. Too much to see and read. Really like the indepth look at the different regiments versus a typical generic museum. A must see for sure.
  • I came back here after nearly 3 years. It's always a good experience to tour inside and see the exhibits they have to show. Well organized and nice displays!
