The Fort Museum of the North West Mounted Police Ticket

The Fort Museum of the Northwest Mounted Police is the most popular attraction in Fort Macleod, drawing as many as 25,000 visitors a year. From the beginning of July to the end of August, the Fort puts on a traditional Musical Ride 4 times daily, showcasing the horsemanship skills of the Mounted Police. With your full-day pass you’ll have access to the Fort Museum as well. The museum houses a number of fascinating displays, photographs, and artifacts that bring the experience of early outpost living to life. Orientation tours are available. Music fills the air, a soundtrack of old-time tunes with a military flair that lends an aura of pomp and circumstance to the occasion. All at once a troop of horses and their riders in scarlet regalia trot proudly into the ring to the beat of a drum and the call of a trumpet. They begin to circle, picking up the pace, and then without missing a beat, move effortlessly into their first formation. It's quite a spectacle, seeing the gorgeous animals and their confident leaders guiding them easily into place.
