Museums & Historic Sites Culture, Heritage & Arts

Alberta’s heritage is really old, but never dull. From the days when triceratops roamed, to Indigenous sites older than Stonehenge, to the first railway boom and onward, there’s plenty of history to uncover. Choose between hundreds of museums and interactive historic sites. • Only here: Find one of the largest collections of complete dinosaur skeletons in the world at the Royal Tyrrell Museum. • Curious: Wander around big-city museums like Calgary’s Glenbow and Edmonton’s Royal Alberta Museum. They have a local perspective on exhibits that’ll pique your curiosity about Canada’s history. 

Feeling invigorated and inspired by the Calgary Made It package at Ramada Plaza Calgary Downtown. Ideas to explore Calgary beyond what you may have come to expect. Reminded that travel doesn’t have to take you across the world to show you something new, to energize you, to give you a new experience.
