Alberta's Provincial Historic Sites, Interpretive Centres and Museums

Reynolds-Alberta Museum


The Reynolds-Alberta Museum in Wetaskiwin, Alberta, interprets the impact of technological change in transportation, aviation, agriculture and industry from the 1890s to the present. Visitors will see a wide variety of vintage automobiles, motorcycles, bicycles, trucks, stationary engines, tractors, agricultural implements, aircraft and industrial equipment.

The Reynolds-Alberta Museum opened in 1992 and is a project of Alberta Culture and Tourism and Alberta Infrastructure.

The museum is named after Mr. Stan Reynolds, a Wetaskiwin businessman and world-renowned collector who donated a core collection of 1500 artifacts to the Province of Alberta. Mr. Reynolds donated this core collection between 1982 and 1986, but also continued to donate artifacts regularly from his collections until his death in February of 2012.

The Reynolds-Alberta Museum is one of 18 provincially owned and operated historic sites, interpretive centres and museums and is supported by the Friends of the Reynolds-Alberta Museum Society.
