The confluence of the Bow and Elbow Rivers has been a historical and cultural gathering place from the first Indigenous people thousands of years ago to the arrival of the North-West Mounted Police in 1875. From its origins as Mohkinsstsis (Blackfoot), Wîchîspa (Nakoda), and Guts’ists’i (Tsuut’ina), to its more recent history as a national, provincial and municipal historic site, Fort Calgary has a complex story to tell.

Fort Calgary is operated by the Fort Calgary Preservation Society. Fort Calgary preserves, protects, enhances and promotes the significance of the site for the benefit of the citizens and visitors to the city of Calgary. It is the birthplace of the city of Calgary and played a significant role in the evolution of Canada’s world-renowned RCMP.

Our Mission is to create a place where people and history intersect.

We offer a museum, public education, school programs and special events. We also offer outstanding dining, catering and event venue. Be a part of Calgary’s history.
