Operation Bow Athabasca – The Video

Our new exhibition “Operation Bow Athabasca – The Geological Survey of Canada takes on the Rockies” is on display from early May until late October. Please don’t miss this exhibition which highlights the work of the GSC in the mid-1960s by Drs. Ray Price and Eric Mountjoy and a team of geologists.

Jewels of the Bow

So many mysterious objects in our collection; what to do? With the help of a grant from The Calgary Foundation, the hard work of our collection manager Amanda Sittrop, and a legion of volunteers providing background information, Deep Research into our collection has resulted in the exhibition “Jewels of the Bow”.

You can do a virtual visit online; or, better yet, you can come into the museum to see all of these objects now on display.



We are running the GeoKidz program again, this year. For 6 Tuesdays throughout the summer at both 10 am and again at 2pm there will be rotating activities , so people can book more than one and have new opportunities for kids to learn.

GeoKidz is a  2 hour activity based program for children ages 4 to 8. We are offering the program most Tuesdays throughout the summer. We will rotate through activities, so children can repeat the program and learn something new every time
