Mission Statement:

To collect, preserve, study and exhibit those objects that will serve to illustrate the story of the Regiment in Canadian military history. Understanding this heritage gives a better appreciation of the traditions and uniqueness as a Western Canadian Highland Regiment.

The Military Museums is located in Calgary, Alberta across from the former site of Currie Barracks and Canadian Forces Base Calgary. The Museum is home to The Calgary Highlanders Museum and Archives. One of the permanent galleries of The Military Museums is devoted to displaying artifacts and exhibits related specifically to The Calgary Highlanders. The Museum also boasts an extensive archive of documents and artifacts pertaining to the regiment’s history. The gallery, open for public display whenever The Military Museums are operating, chronicles the evolution of the 103rd Regiment (Calgary Rifles), 10th Battalion and The Calgary Highlanders.

Life size dioramas depict the grim realities of war and are vivid reminders of the heroism of Canadian soldiers, their significant battles and achievements. Together with photographs, documents, medals, weapons and uniforms, the gallery unfolds the history of this proud regiment through two World Wars, as a source of volunteers for UN and NATO Missions throughout the world, as a training unit during times of peace, and in the War on Terror. The links below will take you on a brief Virtual Tour of the regimental gallery.

The Calgary Highlanders Regimental Museum and Archives holds information about the 103rd Calgary Rifles, the 10th Battalion CEF, the 56th Battalion CEF, the 82nd Battalion CEF and the Calgary Highlanders.
