Science Museum
“A place to tease the minds of all the family. Hosts many presentations that travel from city to city but also has a wonderful permanent collection of fascinating modules of their own! There’s also an IMAX Theatre within the same building which often shows the latest amazing natural wonders up close and often scary but beautiful things on earth that still remain.”

Museum
“The museum started 25 years ago, when a group of aviation buffs convinced Edmonton City Council to let them use the historic Blatchford hangar on Kingsway. It’s the last remaining double-long, double-wide hangar from the World War II era and is a protected historic resource. Over the years, hundreds of dedicated volunteers have worked on our iconic collection of more than 20 aircraft, including many ground-up restorations.”
