Description

The Military Museums of Calgary, Alberta is the largest tri-service museum in Western Canada and the second largest military museum in the country.

It consists of the four founding regimental museums and the Naval, Army and Air Force Museums of Alberta. We are also home to The Founders' Gallery and The Military Museums Library and Archives (University of Calgary).

This is a wonderful opportunities for homeschoolers to learn more about the Canadian Military, it's history, and learn first hand about the amazing contributions our country's military has made.



The day's schedule will include:

Artifact Handling Presentation: Students have an opportunity to handle real Canadian Armed Forces artifacts such as helmets, boots and gas masks ranging from the First World War to Afghanistan.

Morse Code Program: It was the original text message. Students will learn about the significance of Morse Code technology and learn its role in military history, in addition to learning how to communicate in Morse Code.

The Air Force Museum Tour: The Air Force Museum of Alberta — From Billy Bishop to the Red Baron, bombers to the ground crew, and peacekeeping to POWs, this tour starts with the early days of flight and takes students through to Canada’s present day air force.

Remembrance Presentation, Origins of Remembrance: This is a presentation of the experiences and insights from a World War One nursing sister as she details how Remembrance Day and the symbols of remembrance began.
