    Administrative history

    The Reynolds-Alberta Museum is an agricultural, industrial, and transportation museum in Wetaskiwin, Alberta that first opened to the public in 1992. The foundation of its collection is the artifacts donated between 1981 and 2012 by Stan Reynolds (1923-2012), a Wetaskiwin businessman who had acquired aviation and automotive collectibles since the 1950s.
