Very well displayed items Easy to navigate Nice Theater Friendly efficient staff Great out door equipment
Always fascinated with the oilsands. Great demo's and videos. Neat to see all the old retired equipment in the "gardens" Kids loved all the interactive things to do.
The ecological impact is monitored by REAL scientists. Hired by REAL GREEDY oil companies. Wake up poor people. Our apathy allows the destruction.
Great value for your money and a must visit for anyone interested in finding out more about the oil sands.
Next best thing to mountain top removal and clear cutting old growth timber. Had a blast learning how humanity ignores the destuction of an ecosystem for short term corporate profit.
A must see for understanding how we are destroying our only planet. Bring the kids!
