Fun and interesting exhibits. Adult nights are an “outside the box” date night option!
Many interactive things for everyone to do. Educational and interesting. Close to the Calgary zoo.
A contemporary Science Centre with lots of hands-on activities and displays. If you have kids, this is a place you will want to check out. It's a short drive/Uber East, or C-train to the Zoo Station (followed by a 1km walk, so beware if your kids like to complain about a walk).

“The Calgary Zoo takes you to see almost 900 animals from around the world. Trek through the gorillas rainforest, safari over the savannah to watch the hippos swim, or climb the Canadian wilds to see a grizzly bear. (And so much more!!)”
“1) The permanent collection. I have a soft spot for this. It is has the settler perspective of settlement, much of it in slightly Impressionistic late 19th century style, canoes in the mist, heroic conversions of prairie to fertile farms, the mountains, the wildlife, the First Nations. 2) Niitsitapiisini - The Story of the Blackfoot People. The counter narrative in the same building in Blackfoot and English. There are incredible things here, winter counts including the first captured horse and first Smallpox epidemic, the medicinal botany, the teachings of cultural geography, the story robe of a hero, the history of assimilation projects such as residential schools that came with the newcomers, a deep Blackfoot perspective, pretty much up to the present. 3. A stupendously good gallery of 'capital H' historic South East Asian sculpture. Hindu deities, Gandhara and Mathura representations of the Buddha and, Tibetan tantric representations of mastered emotions.”
“This recreational island is located in the Bow River providing stressed-out urbanites opportunities to bike, hike and fish”

In the summer months, you can learn all about life as a 19th century fur-trader or railway worker, and visit old-fashioned blacksmith's shops and lumber yards. And SO MUCH MORE!”
