The Fort Museum of the North West Mounted Police


The home to the North West Mounted Police (the predecessors of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police), the Fort Museum houses the official museum of this famous, scarlet-coated force. Visit during July or August when riders in 19th-century uniforms mount horses for a Mounted Patrol Musical Ride. Performances of synchronized precision movements are given several times a day. The museum also features Mountie paraphernalia and a large collection of local First Nations artifacts. The museum is open May 6 to June 1 Tuesday through Friday from 9 AM to 5 PM; June 2 to June 30 daily from 9 AM to 5 PM; July 1 to Canadian Labor Day daily 9 AM to 6 PM; and September 2 to Canadian Thanksgiving Day Wednesday through Sunday 10 AM to 4 PM, closed Monday and Tuesday. Rates vary with the season, so be sure to call ahead. Musical rides are scheduled from July through early September at 10 AM, 11:30 AM, 2 PM, and 3:30 PM except on Tuesdays, weather permitting.
