Do What the Locals Do – Episode 12 – The Military Museums
Welcome everyone to our 12th installment of do what the locals do in Calgary. This time around, we will travel back into time, exploring honorable deeds, valorous acts and courage like that of Canada’s war veterans at the Military Museums in Calgary.
It is hard for us who haven’t experienced war to fathom what it was like. We have a very comfortable lifestyle in Canada, one without exposure to most of the terrible tragedies seen in other parts of our world. The Military Museums in Calgary are important in helping us remember what it was really like for the war veterans of Canada, what they fought for and what they had accomplished. Without them, our nation would not be what it is today and we should thank them for it.
The Military Museums is an interactive learning experience and is great for the whole family. Activities include:
- Permanent displays depicting scenes of war
- Temporary displays that are switched out once every while
- Comprehensive picture and art galleries
- Lectures from military personnel and officials
- Guided tours for schools and public
- Summer youth programs
- Facility rentals to the public
- Vending machines for food and drink
