What We Do
Heirtage Park Historical Village is Canada’s most engaging living history museum, where visitors of all ages and walks of life can personally experience the heritage of Western Canada in a way that inspires, educates and entertains. The park connects visitors to the Settlement of Western Canada from the 1860s to the 1950s through memorable experiences. Since 1964 the Park has introduced millions of people from around the world to how the west was once by providing an authentic representation of the past.
Since 2009, Heritage Park has doubled in size, become a year-round operation and has been awarded over 70 times for its excellence. The Park is constantly expanding its ability to share the stories of our past with new programming and exhibits, including the new Famous 5 Centre of Canadian Women, the Montefiore Institute and Gasoline Alley Museum.
