Fort Calgary Historic Park - Review
Overlooking the confluence of the Bow and Elbow Rivers, Fort Calgary was completed in 1875. Unlike other forts that were used to keep invaders at bay, the primary job of Fort Calgary was to prevent the sale of alcohol to the local residents, by the Montana whiskey traders.
The completed fort was symbolic of a city being formed in the course of time and the exhibits inside the fort all voice and display the hopes and aspirations of the people, of how this upcoming city should be shaped up; the Interpretive Centre is where you’ll get most of your information from. Check out the Hunt House behind Deane House Restaurant.
The Fort Calgary, unlike most forts, had a very different purpose. It was built to keep in check the selling of alcohol to the people of Calgary in the late 19th century.

Fort Calgary Historic Park, Calgary Reviews
A wonderful museum. Some very interesting displays. (not 100% keen on the facebook/twitter feed styling of some of them) Still an enjoyable morning spent finding more out about Calgary and the RCMP.
I was delightfully surprised by the quality of the buffet. Although the selection isn't as vast as other places, the order menu was fantastic. Definitely quality over quantity. Be sure to try the scones if that's your thing!
Today enjoyed the Easter brunch at Fort Calgary, It was beyond expectation, superlative and scrumptious. The wait staff were very accommodating and patient but run off their feet. They earned every dollar. The brunch price includes a tour of the museum which is worthwhile visiting if you have time. We must go soon to tour the museum as I love history.
A great piece of Calgary history. Upside: walk through exhibit and outdoor river pathway offers excellent views of downtown Calgary and marsh areas. Excellent dining experience. Downside: Pricey.
The lady at the counter was rude when I went there to grab my free cultural pass. I called them to check their hours and someone told me to come before 5pm. When I reached there at 4:05pm, an old lady at counter rudely said I should come early as they close at 5pm and there was paper work that she had to do. She eventually gave me my pass, and it literally took 5 min. I failed to understand why was she upset taking me 55min earlier than actual closing time. Someone needs to coach her on her job duties.
