4 Edmonton Museum Exhibitions to See This Winter

Want something fun to check out this winter that keeps you protected from
the cold? Edmonton has many interesting museums that open up for different
times of each year. It can be tough to keep track of what's open and what isn't
for each season, so we've gathered up four great museums, or in some cases
their best exhibitions, that either open this winter or will be open before the
winter ends. Give these a look when you're eager to see something new.

Survival Guide

Want a thought-provoking exhibit with a mix of artistic mediums? From
January 28 to May 7, 2017, take a trip to the Art Gallery of Alberta for Survival
Guide.
This enigmatic and cerebral exhibit examines, individual,
collective, and communal survival with photographic, video, sculpture, and
print artworks, plus live performances. The nature of independence and what it
really means to survive as a species in modern times are all covered by a range
of contemporary artists. Adult tickets are $14.25, and a family group for two
adults and four children is $26.50.

Leduc #1 Energy
Discovery Centre

This award-winning museum is 10 minutes from Edmonton International Airport
and re-opening on Monday, February 13, 2017. Based around the history of the
Alberta oil patch, the 23,000-square-foot museum has over 200 exhibits, and
also lets visitors take a virtual drill-bit ride, learn through interactive
laboratory tasks, and even see a drilling rig in action. Leduc #1 is
all about energy sources and also shows the many alternative energy
technologies available, from wind and thermal to wave power. Group admission
for a full family is $25, while individual adult tickets are $10.

Alberta Aviation
Museum

Anyone with a passion for new and old aircraft will get a real kick out of
this place. Edmonton was essential to Canada's aviation industry in the early
20th century, and this massive hangar near the airport houses a museum with
countless planes dating as far as the 1920s. See some of the very first commercial
jets, the Piccard Hot Air Balloon, Lockheed Starfighters, and many other
diverse styles. Adult tickets are $12, and a family pass for two parents and up
to four children is only $30.

Angry Birds
Universe

Every Saturday starting January 7, Telus World of Science will hold this
exhibit on the mobile gaming phenomenon Angry Birds, and use it as an
opportunity to teach related subjects. Great for kids and adults alike, the
fully interactive area will teach science, physics, engineering, mathematics, and
much more through the context of the Angry Birds world. There will be a
climbing wall, downhill raceways for visitor-constructed cars, and plenty more.
Tickets for members are only $7.95, while family non-member group tickets for
the entire science center are $122.25.

Each of these museums has enough to justify coming back more than once, or
you could plan a time to visit each one for a truly eventful winter. Have
fun and be sure to bring a few friends or family for the best deals.
