Announcing Our 2017 United Space School Student

We are pleased to announce our 2017 FISE United Space School Student who will be representing Western Canada this summer: Elizabeth Drew.

Remembrance Day Ceremony Recap

The chill November air moved our ceremony inside this year, but the weather didn't stop Calgarians from joining us to remember the sacrifices our veterans have made.  A special addition this year was the Calgary Youth Chorus who premiered a new song called When November Comes.  Here are the poignant lyrics from an anonymous Canadian patriot:

Here I lie in this field of poppies.

And here I'll die for the land I love.

So say a prayer, and don't forget me

When November comes.

 

Closing Early July 20

Due to a facility rental, the museum will be closed one hour early on Sunday July 20, 2014.  This means that we will be open on that date from 10am-3pm.  Thank you for your understanding.

Closed for Private Function

On April 16th and 17th 2014 the museum will be closed for a private function. We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause.
