The Calgary Highlanders Museum and Archives tells the tale of the 103rd Battilion, the 10th Battalion and The Calgary Highlanders. The Highlanders originated on April 1st, 1910 in Calgary. Serving in both World Wars, the group then went on to perform peace-keeping missions around the world. The regiment is rich with history, tales and colourful characters, all of which you can learn about through their museum and archives.
Bringing history to life
Life-size figures, authentic clothing and replicas, photographs and displays all bring the world of the Calgary Highlanders to life in this museum, one of five permanent galleries that comprise The Military Museums. Groups can tour through the gallery and immerse themselves in the war-time tales of heroes and enemies, battles and the life of a soldier. The learning experience can be taken in by both individuals, school groups, or virtually anyone who has an interest in Canada’s military. The military archives are a wonderful source of information.
