My kids and I had a wonderful day at the museum. We all enjoyed the exhibits and had a wonderful lunch at the cafe. It was a great afternoon and I look forward to visiting the new location once it's completed.

Something for everyone here, and also have "special interest" travelling exhibits. I go a couple times/yr and always find something new that I never noticed before or that grabs my attention. Keep an eye on their website for new developments...yes, at the museum lol.

Recently took a trip to the Royal Alberta Museum and was very disappointed! They do have a good display of stone and minerals, drawers with specimens to look at and an extensive taxidermy collection but that is where it stops. They have a very poor fossil and dino display and their Syncrude Gallery of Aboriginal Culture is terrible. They have... More

Superb exhibits, carefully arranged and very well described, cover the geology and extraordinary natural history of Alberta in particular and Canada in general. A really first class room covering the First Nation people and their experiences is a highlight. I am not a huge museum fan but this was really good and I could have spent all day. First class...

Wonderful place to visit, plan to spend at least 3 hours there. Front desk staff could be a little more friendlier.

Quite a mixed group at the Museum. Fun to see variety of people experience the exhibits. Road construction made it a challenge to get there
