If you like hands on, up close contact and information about machines from the early1900's, this is the place to loose yourself for several hours or the whole day. You can reach it driving north of Calgary about 2 1/2 hours, along the Queen Elizabeth II highway (# 2) and a little over an hour south from Edmonton. It started in the early 1900's as a collection of farm machinery, cars, airplanes as well as industrial machines. The Province of Alberta was given it as a gift for taking over the upkeep by Stan Reynolds who owned it all. See cars from old model Ts and million dollar Daimler, to tractors, combines and one cylinder motors. Join the production line (kids also) for a Henry Ford assembly line for a model T. See antique autos partially restored (half refurbished and the other half the way it started out ) as well as a birds eye view of the shop where the old clunkers are restored to show room condition. When you have seen enough in the main building go next door to the hanger where aircraft and collectibles are displayed. Try your hand in the 4 engine aircraft simulator, or in season get a ride in a bi-plane. (small extra charge.) Watch old automobiles drive around. You'll want to spend a great deal of time here, and then head home with pleasure and enjoyment from a by-gone era.
