  • Reynolds displays the history of transportation, aviation, agriculture and industry in Alberta using well laid out and pleasing displays. The buildings are large and well maintained and the staff are friendly, courteous and very helpful. Everyone should visit Reynolds! They also have an amazing gift shop with many wonderful items (toys, clothing, books games and more), a theatre where two shows play every day, and an open access research room containing the largest collection of publically available vehicle manuals in Canada! It's definitely worth another visit (and a third and fourth visit)! :)
  • Nostalgic museum. Both of my young sons had a blast. Couldn't get them to leave
  • Very well presented. My wife was impressed... and she was determined to not like it prior to entering...
  • A wonderful gem of a place making history come alive as vintage cars drive around and at different times of the year various displays outside are exhibited showing the way things used to be. From farm exhibition to Aviation by way of biplane rides to the amazing displays they have throughout the museum covering everything from ultra rare cars, to motorcycles to amazing aircraft of a wide variety showcasing Canada and it's amazing Aviation heritage. A truly wonderful place to visit. Keep an eye to their website you never know what they will have going on it could be a motorcycle show or car show or even an air show you just never know..
  • Much better than I was expecting. Lots of cars to look at, sit in, and explore. Hands on activities kept the kids entertained. In the summer they offer more tours and experiences, including being able to sit in some byplanes. My kids loved the drive in movie theatre playing classic superhero movies.
