It’s family day this weekend, and there are so many things to do with the kids in Calgary. If you haven’t had the chance to explore the Royal Tyrrell Museum, it’s one of nine sites around the province offering up free admission to celebrate Family Day.
Spending time with family and friends is the most important part of Family Day. I can’t think of a better way to do so than exploring the many amazing places in our province. Free admission to heritage sites and museums makes Alberta’s culture and history accessible for everyone.
Ricardo Miranda, Minister of Culture and Tourism
Albertans love their provincial parks and the opportunity to connect with nature. This Family Day, Alberta Parks is thrilled to once again offer free, family-friendly activities. A provincial park is an hour away or less from most communities so I encourage everyone to get outside, enjoy the outdoors and make memories.
Feed your curiosity from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Journey through millions of years of history and see thousands of objects, from dinosaurs and mammoths to tiny insects and glowing gems. See how Alberta’s Indigenous communities share knowledge and values through generations, and meet the people who shaped our province. Plus, visit thousands of live critters and have fun in our Children’s Gallery, complete with an archeological dig pit. Get ready to discover a history of Alberta you won’t find anywhere else.
