About the Museum
Lord Strathcona’s Horse (Royal Canadians) Regimental Museum is located at The Military Museums (4520 Crowchild Trail S.W.) in Calgary. The Regimental Museum boasts a static gallery of 2500 square feet where it relates the history of the Regiment from 1900 to present. The collection holds thousands of artifacts waiting to be displayed, while the Archives has thousands of photographs, records, documents and diaries and conducts research for personal and professional institutions around the world on a daily basis.
On average, the Museum hosts approximately 40,000 visitors annually and educates the public with stories of cavalry history and traditions from western Canada’s only regular force Armoured unit.
Recently added to the displays is the 45-foot trailer, donated by prominent Calgary businessman Art Hazle owner and president of Leaseway Corporation. This trailer has been converted to a travelling museum. Inside is the entire 100+ year history of the LdSH(RC) displayed using artifacts, pictures and art. This travelling Museum is used for displays at local events and is the backbone of the Museum of the Regiments mobile history program for local schools.
