Let us tell you a story....

The story of Leduc #1 is the story of Alberta, of the men (and women) who pushed the boundaries to find black gold, and of February 13, 1947: the day Alberta's economy was forever changed. If you have always wondered how Alberta got into the oil game, how fossil fuels are created in the Earth, or what bitumen is, you have come to the right place. Leduc #1 Energy Discovery Centre offers a hands-on education: climb aboard a working oil rig; enter the World's Largest Drill Bit; create alternative energy in the Leaning Lab; and learn just how important this resource is in your day to day life.
