“Our Oil History”
New Permanent Exhibit Launch
Coinciding with the 77th anniversary of the Leduc No. 1 discovery, we have put together a new exhibit looking at the history of Leduc No. 1, the development of the Town of Devon, and the relationship Albertans and Canadians have had to oil and other energy sources over the decades.
The exhibit encompasses seven new artifact display cases and the interior renovation of our popular replica Skid Shack. The Skid Shack has gotten a new paint job, shelving installed, and decorated to reflect the life of a small oil family of three living in the late-1940s / early-1950s. This renovation has been possible through our collaboration with Energy Stories Lab and their new Skid Shack VR app which used 3D scans of our Skid Shack as a base.
