Military Museum Museum
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 way to spend a day with the family. Something for everyone. Friendly and super helpful staff. Really was a great day. So much to see and do. Really can't say enough good things about the place. Way better deal than any of the other places yo can go in Calgary.
  • Great displays, great tank farm, three planes in the hanger. Good descriptions for displays. $15 for adult, veterans get in for free with proof.
  • An extremely clean, well-staffed and informative experience altogether. Surprisingly spacious and stocked with no shortage of exhibits and displays A strong sense of patriotism throughout the museum, though a tasteful one that pays due respect to those who sacrificed their freedoms for ours. An excellent place to spend the afternoon with family.
  • Great representation of the local regiments and their history. Also some excellent displays of the historical kit the forces used. As well as having a representation for the navy which normally isn't available this far from the ocean.
  • This is a fantastic war museum. They have such a large collection I artifacts and displays about all the various wars. If interested enough, you could spend days in here and it get bored!
