  • If you're interested in learning about the history of the Oil Sands or how it all works, it's definitely worth a visit. There are things for the kids to do and lots to learn about! 
  • A great opportunity to understand, first hand, the history and process of the oil sands development. The Discovery Centre is superbly equipped and great for adults and children. 
  • As one of the many workers in the oil sands industry, I really appreciate all the facilities to help the public understanding Alberta's or Canada's biggest industry. 
  • Great value for your money and a must visit for anyone interested in finding out more about the oil sands.
  • The ecological impact is monitored by REAL scientists. Hired by REAL GREEDY oil companies. Wake up poor people. Our apathy allows the destruction.
  • 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!
  • Informative & fun
