If you are a car nut this is the place for you. If not, it still is a great display of Alberta history. Staff is passionate about what they do and full of information. Nice interactive displays for kids as well. A must see

We stopped in at Gasoline Alley Museum during our trip to Heritage Park. There are antique cars which I learned are still able to be driven. It is a musuem for car lovers.

This is a great little museum with a lot of beautiful old cars and trucks in it. The restored "town" next to the museum is a great place to visit too. The model train village/railine will be a hit for the kids too!
