1. Plan Ahead: Check the museum's Special Events page so you can time your visit right. From equestrian events like the RCMP Musical Ride to the holiday Festival of Lights, there is always something fun going at the museum! In summer, the museum offers carriage rides and wagon rides (extra charge), weather permitting.

3. Take a FREE Guided Tour: Knowledgeable and passionate staff bring the horsedrawn era to life with their stories. They also point out features you might miss if exploring on your own - beautiful Tulip lamps and squeaky leather suspension (used for 2,000 years!), for example - and tell you who those people in the cutouts are. Love royalty? Queen Elizabeth II has ridden in two carriages here!

4. Ask Questions: Don't be shy; museum staff love to answer questions.

5. Take a Break: Go for a walk around the grounds, or take a carriage ride (summer only), grab a bite to eat at the concession, or browse the gift shop, then explore the rest of the exhibits as time allows.
