With today’s Groupon to the Leduc #1 Energy Discovery Centre in Devon. Choose between the following options:

The interactive exhibits at Leduc #1 Energy Discovery Centre chronicle the impact of Alberta’s oil boom from the first drilling in 1947 to discoveries in the present day. Traipse back in time through the Centre’s collection of historical artifacts, letting eyes feast on a banquet of oil-patch memorabilia, rig equipment, and models. Or, ensconced in a theatre designed to look like a giant drill bit, visitors can embark on a virtual journey 1,700 meters below the earth’s surface. A cadre of expert guides circulates throughout the exhibits, stopping to answer visitors’ questions such as, “How did oil transform Alberta’s formerly agrarian economy?” and “Does oil really hate water that much?” Guests may also meander through the Canadian Petroleum Hall of Fame, which pays homage to the enormous contributions of 124 petroleum-steeped pioneers and heroes through a series of photos and personal stories. Members of the Leduc #1 drilling crew and Hall of Famers have also been known to put in appearances at the Centre, regaling lucky day-trippers with tales of bygone years and reenactments of their favourite moments in oil’s 374-million-year history.
