The Fort Museum

The Fort Museum is dedicated to preserving the history of the NWMP and First Nations People from the area. The museum was built and first opened in 1957. In 1973 the Fort started it’s world famous NWMP Musical Ride, and has proudly kept the tradition to this day.

Activities include the Groom-a-Horse Program, where Program participants will be guided by their very own Mounted Patrol escort through the process of getting a horse ready for the Musical Ride performance. Participants will not only learn about horse grooming and care, but also about local and NWMP history.

Also experience “The March of the Redcoats”, a live theatre production providing a fun, entertaining depiction of Fort Macleod history. Based on facts and intertwined with folktales of local historical figures in southern Alberta, such as Jerry Potts and Chief Crowfoot of the fierce Blackfoot tribe, it brings to life characters only read about in books.
