Museum
“Big, welcoming, affordable with lots to see! Has a kids section and large gift shop. New, well lite, lots on Indigenous history, great displays in 2 galleries, though at times we felt a disconnect from one display to the next. Be prepared for lots of reading and being on your feet. Short on seated video areas and interactive displays that would appeal to kids. Would need at least a couple of hours”

“Tres Carnales is amongst the best in the world. Awesome, lively, vibrant setting in the heart of Edmonton’s downtown. On busy nights you will find a lineup with people patiently, but excitedly waiting for a seat. Have a beer or sangria while you wait to place your order at the counter before being seated. There is usually only one vegan item on the menu, but it is fabulous! Staff are outstanding. ”
