Reynolds-Alberta Museum - Wetaskiwin

The Reynolds-Alberta Museum in Wetaskiwin, Alberta is described on their web page as representing “technological changes in transportation, aviation, agriculture and industry from the 1890s to the present. Visitors will see a wide variety of vintage automobiles, motorcycles, bicycles, trucks, stationary engines, tractors, agricultural implements, aircraft and industrial equipment”. You can visit their web page for more information: http://www.history.alberta.ca/reynolds/specialevents/specialevents.aspx .

It was also indicated to me that if anyone plans to use photos for sale or profit will have to contact the Head of Marketing and Communications. It’s not that it can’t be done but there are some stipulations for crediting the Museum.

We can use tripods and camera flashes as long as we are not disruptive to the public and respect the rules of the museum like any member of the public.

Admission is $10.00 per person.

Direction from Edmonton

45 km (28 miles) south east of Edmonton.
The site is 30 minutes south east of Edmonton International Airport. 
The Museum is accessed via Highway 2 and 2A, two km (1 mile) west    of Wetaskiwin on Highway 13

    The museum was great! Good weather to walk over to the aircraft display. Then I took a drive to the ORIGINAL Reynolds Museum. Photos later. Good outing!

    Sorry for the really short notice. I woke up this morning and am not feeling that great and won't be able to make it. It's unfortunate as I have been wanting to go for months when I first signed up :( Not sure if it's the loss of an hour or what but I'm going to rest so as not to miss any work. Sorry about cancelling on such short notice. :(

    Oh poop :-). Just saw that there was a spot open in an email this morning but it appears to be full. If I'm misunderstanding, let me know as I'd love to go. If not, another time....

    Seems like we might have some interest in car pooling from South Ed Common.
    E-Mail me by clicking the Send E-Mail button on my profile under my name if you want to Car Pool. Google Maps says it is a 47 min trip via the Calagary Trail and highway 13 so have to meet at about 9:30. I'll drive or someone else as long as the car can fit a 6' 240 lb. man comfortably.

    With all the drivers, maybe we should think about saving a few bucks on gas and leaving some cars at somewhere like the North End of the Walmart Parking Lot at South Edmonton Common. I'd agree to gather there and the one with the fanciest car is obviously the one who can afford to take us to Wetaskiwin.

    Oh, best to reply to ride offer via the email button under my name in my profile. Bad idea to post personal information.

    Heather and anyone else who wants a ride. Have three seats in a now non-smoking RAV4 (room for gear in back). Best for me would be three folks willing to meet me at the North End of the Walmart Parking Lot at South Edmonton Common or somewhere in Sherwood Park.

    I will tentative say yes, but will have to see closer to the date. I need to purchase a tripod (any recommendations for a beginner) and need to car pool

    February 26, 2013

  • Deb D.

  • Lina A.

    Hi. I'd like to join. But depending on the date. Also i will need a carpool.

    February 20, 2013

  • Allan S.

    If the weather is good I should be able to make this.

    February 8, 2013

  • Laurice B.

    I posted this suggestion to see if anyone would be interested. I have been there before and it is a difficult shoot. Low light so you would need a tripod for sure. If you have a flash or two that would even be better. If people are interested then I will contact the museum and try to set something up.

    1 · January 15, 2013

    • Laurice B.

      I do not think the museum would appreciate it if we use the museum as a backdrop so I would suggest not. You could approach them independently on that issue and make your own arrangements. However, most places will charge for this type of shoot.

    • Laurice B.

      Great It seems that individual do not check this tab very often so I am not sure of the response. Give me a date that you have a weekend off and I will see what I can do
