Discovery Centre

The Oil Sands Discovery Centre in Fort McMurray is located in the heart of the world's biggest single oil deposit - Alberta's Oil Sands. At the Centre you will see first hand how oil is processed and get a feel for the industry.

In the summer, tours begin at the Oil Sands Discovery Centre where you will discover a friendly and interactive introduction to the Athabasca Oil Sands, then hop on board for a 3.5 hour site tour that includes stops at the Giants of Mining Exhibit, Wood Bison Gateway and the Wood Bison viewpoint.

Visit Fort McMurray tourism for more oil sands and related tours. Be sure to bring your camera, as you simply won't believe your eyes!
