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.
The Military Museums reviews
I have been to many military museums and displays in the US and Canada. This particular museum rates right up there with the best. It is very spacious and we'll laid out. Due to Covid 19 restrictions.... more »

Well put together, clean, lots to see and friendly staff. Also has many things to read and look at. Very educational. Make sure to give yourself time so you can read all the great History.
Took my kids there recently. The museum has excellent displays throughout. The historical stuff was a little dry for my impatient youngsters so I didn't get a chance to take it all in as deeply as is have liked. The equipment they have is quite impressive. The kids were a little disappointed they they weren't able to sit inside one of the many vehicles on display. There is so much to take in we totally forgot about the two planes in hangers outside! Next time... The staff were very pleasant and even changed my requested admission choice and saved me some cash. It's not out of the way but you wouldn't stumble upon it while driving so make sure you plan your trip. Well worth the time and money! Will be going back to doing taking it all in.
