The Fort Calgary Museum and Interpretive Centre provides an engaging overview of Calgary’s vibrant history and the tumultuous history of this site. Your admission ticket gives you the chance to slip on a RCMP uniform, get ‘locked’ in a jail cell and a lot more.

Fort Calgary, the birthplace of Calgary, has been important to the Blackfoot and other indigenous peoples for centuries. When the North West Mounted Police (now the RCMP) arrived in 1875, it was a natural place for them to build a fort. Made of simple logs, this fort stood for only a few years, but the site continues to be an important marker of Calgary's heritage.

The museum takes about 1.5 hours to explore, though you're welcome to spend more time reading all of the stories. While the 'fort' no longer stands, you still can enjoy 36 acres (15 hectares) of outdoor parkland after you visit the indoor museum. Check out the new outdoor art exhibit, which outlines the original the footprint of the 1875 fort.

During summer months, interpreters and RCMP veterans may be on-hand to answer your questions and to share their own stories of Calgary and the Force.
