The Reynolds-Alberta Museum is excited to unveil its new, interactive exhibit, Stan Reynolds: the Original Canadian Picker.
Opening July 4 until October 2016, the exhibit welcomes you into the life of Stan Reynolds who spent decades collecting pieces of Alberta’s transportation history.
Who was Stan Reynolds?
Stan was a Wetaskiwin businessman, collector, aviator and philanthropist. He was the initiator and primary benefactor of the Reynolds-Alberta Museum, which is named in recognition of the Reynolds family.
What does the exhibit include?
Part of the exhibition includes a new behind-the-scenes tour of the museum’s Collection Storage Facility where you will have the opportunity to explore rare vehicles. These tours runs for July and August only — to book your spot, please call (780)312-2065.
Visitors can also sign up for a “White Glove” tour to get up close and personal with some amazing artifacts donated by the Reynolds family including a 1911 Hupp-Yeats Electric Coach, 1942 Hawker Hurricane cockpit and a 1947 Grey Gull helicopter – the first helicopter ever designed, built and flown in Canada!
