Wednesday-Sunday, 10am-5pm

This land between the confluence of the Bow and Elbow rivers has been a place of Indigenous significance for thousands of years and remains so today. More recently, it became a site of colonization with the occupation of the North West Mounted Police and increasing settler presence, eventually leading to the creation of the city of Calgary.

The histories here are complex and diverse, unique and shared, inspiring and troubling. They bring together the land, the water, the animals, the plants, and the people who have been connected to this place for generations. They inform our collective experiences in what is today called Canada. Join Fort Calgary in exploring how these stories evolve, grow, and change as we continue to learn about this place.
