About
With more than 200 exhibits and attractions spread over 127 acres of lush parkland, Heritage Park Historical Village has a lot to offer both the history buff and the pleasure seeker. It’s the perfect balance between historical fact, adventure, discovery and fun that makes our take on the tale of Western Canada’s history so unique. Tour the Park on an antique steam train, set sail aboard Calgary's only paddlewheel ship, visit the farm animals at the ranch, learn about Blackfoot culture in the First Nations area, engage with Western Canada’s energy past, present and future at Prospect Ridge, explore a bustling young prairie town and discover one of the world’s largest public collections of antique vehicles at Gasoline Alley Museum. The Historical Village is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. from the May long weekend until the first weekend in September, then open weekends until mid-October. Gasoline Alley Museum is open year-round.

Cannot say enough good about this place
We had a spare day in Calgary before we picked up the RV and it was a fantastic way to spend it. The park is wonderful and the staff are very nice and informative the restaurant was good and the cafes the same. They have a proper steam train going through the park. For young kids or old this is a top attraction

Had an amazing time at the Railway Days. There were so many events, I felt like I didn’t have enough time to see everything! Will definitely be coming back to see what else this place has to offer.

Drew’s Saloon was an absolute treat! We were graced with the presence of “Boston” who regaled us with his historical expertise. I truly cannot explain what a great experience this was. An incredible atmosphere. Will definitely visit again!

We arrived on a Saturday half an hour after they opened, but still found parking in the closest lot
The timing was perfect for the entire 3 hours we spent at the park.
After paying for admission, we checked out Gasoline Alley and after a short walk we arrived 3 minutes before the train left.
We circled the park on the train and arrived just 5 minutes before the paddle wheel boat departed.
At the end of the boat ride, we went to the bakery for sausage rolls and their famous cinnamon buns.

Loved this park. So much to do it is hard to do it in a day. My husband wasn’t feeling so well the day we went so we did not get to enjoy as much as we wanted too. I definitely would like to go back. So much history and things to see and do. A great place for families. A lot of walking is the down side. This place is huge. So much to see and do. Definitely go here if your in the area.

My husband and I had a good time there today. There are a lot to see but like my husband pointed out in Gasoline Alley there are fun facts about the cars but not anything real interesting information about the cars. The cars are amazing though and totally worth seeing. We also liked the train part where you can walk through 3 different train cars that was very interesting. We had a really nice time walking around the park and I really liked the place just wished the signing was better and I really don’t understand the train it’s really confusing how it doesn’t run very often and then it skips every 2 station what that’s good for I just don’t understand.

We visited here yesterday as we had a night flight back to the U.K. and needed to find something to fill the day. We’ve been to similar things in the U.K. it was great, really interesting and good value for money. We avoided the amusement bit as that was quite busy. Loved the town and the Prince House and the Famous Five house. Gasoline alley was also really interesting. Plenty of places to get something to eat or drink. Well worth a visit

A nice surprise - really large park with many exhibits. Great car museum with a great gasoline pump collection. A whole village recreated to 1910 timeframe. We had a docent give our group an hour tour - Melanie was very knowledgeable and very helpful to help us realize what life was like on the frontier back then. Train ride was fun - great activity for kids.
