Amazing staff and very helpful. Lots to learn there if you are interested in observing relics and models for oil work. Maybe there is a guided tour as well.

Our 8 and 10 year old thought it was fabulous as well. Lots of hands on and things they could climb on. Spent over two hours there.

Marketing idea: market yourself with other local business as a self guided day trip from Edmonton. People need a reason to go. I've lived here for 5 years and only went because of the groupon. Turning the lights on in the back gallery would also be more welcoming :)

wished we had planned to spend more time there. After 3 hours, we didn't even make it outside to the grounds. The building looks small from the outside and you think you'll be in and out in an hour or two, but there is lots to see and do!

From Our Editors

When the drilling of Leduc #1 turned out to be a game-changing discovery of crude oil, it surprised a whole lot of people and essentially put Alberta on the world's map. That was in 1947. Five decades later, Leduc #1 Energy Discovery Centre was created to showcase the site and its ingenuity, as well as Canada's oil industry.

Here, science and discovery blend into one exciting experience stretched across 80 acres of exhibits, artifacts, and displays. Visitors can feast their eyes on award-winning films, get their hands dirty in an interactive lab, and even take a virtual ride in the world's largest drill bit, which is expected to replace family minivans in the near future. Additionally, tours with industry veterans provide insider facts, and stops to the gift shop ensure memories last long after visits end.
