Historic Attractions and Things to Do in Edmonton
Wondering what to do in Edmonton when you travel to Edmonton or travel to Alberta? If you want to learn about Alberta’s history in a fun, interactive way, visit these fun Edmonton attractions and take a step back in time!
Alberta Aviation Museum
Discover why Alberta has been deemed the “Gateway to the North” in this exciting attraction that showcases the incredible progress of technology and the culture of flight, through interactive tours, artifacts, and exhibits.
Leduc #1 Energy Discovery Centre
This attraction represents one of the most monumental moments in Alberta’s history — the discovery of a major source of oil that allowed Canada to become self-sufficient within a decade and ultimately a major exporter of oil.
Celebrate the spirit of the machine at the Reynolds-Alberta Museum, which has one of Canada's largest and finest collections of cars, airplanes, tractors, and industrial machines! View the historical and educational exhibits at the main gallery and visit the Aviation Hanger, and kids will have a blast in the playhouse where they can make a craft to take home. In the summertime, enjoy a tour of the grounds in a vintage vehicle driven by a chauffeur.
Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village
Watch costumed interpreters re-enact the routines associated with pre-1930s lifestyles, step inside a sod house, wander a farmstead zone, witness a fully-functioning grain elevator, go for a wagon ride, and test your hand at some old-fashioned activities like grain grinding, quilting, and winnowing. Similar to outdoor living history museums like Fort Edmonton Park and Heritage Park — definitely worth a visit to experience a great historical attraction in Alberta!
