The Calgary Zoo is one of my favourite City activities! It’s small enough that you can make it around comfortably and get pretty up close to some beautiful animals. Plus is large enough to have all of the animals you hope to see at a zoo! If you’re visiting in the winter time and the temperature is…

“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.”
