Lots of restored cars and machinery, with signage and videos, to explain it. Guides are also available. Nice way to spend the afternoon for kids or car or history lovers. Shows parts of Alberta history too.

Drove out to Reynolds museum to spend an afternoon browsing days gone by items. It was our 2nd visit there. Last time was when the kids were small and the museum was smaller then as well. I personally love the Dusenberg and the Haker Hurricane fighter. They have an 1925 fire truck from Biggar, SK. (my home town). Everything was... More

Sounds like the museum was able to bring back some fond memories for you. This fall we will be celebrating our 25 birthday, and it is great to know that people like you enjoy coming here with your family and friends. We look forward to having you visit us again - the open cockpit bi-plane adventure is big fun! More

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. What a collection of cars, planes, tractors, steam engines, etc. Machines from all eras and from all walks of life are here to be discovered. We can't wait to come back in the summer when we can take more time to explore the outside and take advantage of everything that is offered. The staff was wonderful, especially... More

Great to hear from you. We do show a variety of films in different locations in the museum. The main theatre features three short 12 minute videos; "Changing Gears", "Stan Reynolds: the Great Collector" and "Who is Stan Reynolds?". The films you refer to are a series of six vignettes called "On Golden Fields". We also have cartoons from the... More

Reynolds Museum is a really cool place to go if you're interested in cars, planes or history at all. It has a ton of cool exibits to see, lots of really cool facts to learn and a ton of neat photo opportunities by way of the many vehicles you can actually sit in. A free, fun vintage car ride over...

I would say this is one of the better vehicle/farm and aircraft museums I've visited. High end facility and reasonable fee. Would tour again.

We enjoyed a special day as we toured this museum. The displays are well-documented and set up very professionally. It was like a trip back in history as we learned about some of the special planes from Alberta and Canada's past. We also enjoyed seeing many metal artists' work that happened to be on display while we were touring the... More

A real gem only a short distance from Edmonton, could easily spend 8 hours here, didn't have that much time but found it a fascinating look at the history of machinery and equipment through the last 150 years, everything from cars to airplanes. Very interactive for children and adults alike
