The Oil Sands Discovery Centre is located in Fort McMurray and in the heart of the Athabasca Oil Sands region of Northern Alberta. It's a Provincial facility operated by Alberta Culture, Historic Sites and Museums Branch, and underwritten by major operators in the area such as Shell, Suncor, and Syncrude.

I was part of a work team that was performing an Audit at one of the Oil Sands facilities. On a rare day off, we took the bus into town and toured around for an hour or 2. It's a cool little educational facility and does a good job of displaying the history, science, and technology of the Oil Sands. I especially enjoyed the Big Truck simulation, and strolling in the Industrial Equipment "Garden". As a casual visitor to Fort McMurray, there's really not a heck of lot to do in Town. However, the Oil Sands Discovery Centre is well worth the time to come over, check out, and learn something interesting.
