The Military Museums in Calgary, Alberta is Western Canada’s only tri-service museum and military education centre. Containing the regimental museums of the Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI), Lord Strathcona’s Horse (Royal Canadians), The King’s Own Calgary Regiment, and the Calgary Highlanders along with the Naval, Army, and Air Force Museums of Alberta, The Military Museums welcome over 10 000 visitors each year.

This is the story of how The Military Museums came to be. From the unprecedented coming together of individual regimental museums to form the Museum of the Regiments to the extraordinary work of veterans and citizens to create and maintain one of Calgary’s principal cultural, educational, and tourist sites, it is a story of perseverance, cooperation, and community.

With the mantra “Remember, Preserve, and Educate,” The Military Museums, Founders Gallery, and Military Museums Libraries and Archives are dedicated to preserving the memories and traditions of the countless Canadians who proudly served their country through war and conflict. Treasuring the Tradition: The Story of the Military Museums is a Special Presentation of the University of Calgary Press
