I just love provincial museums. They always have so many neat things to look at and history to learn!

Looking forward to the larger, new museum we will have soon ( by 2016) downtown. Present museum is nice, pacts a fair amount of Alberta history inside, but lacks compared to many other Provincial museums

A nice "small" local museum. They had a nice exhibit about leather jackets and the second floor aboriginal exhibit was well worth the visit.

The best part for this museum is learning the history of human and evolution. Nothing too interesting but just keep learning. Not too crowded at anytime.

In the government of albertas infinite wisdom this excellent facility will be relocated to a horrid location in skid row. Wonder what will become of the excellent not well attended building sitting on prime real estate overlooking the river valley.

There was a great deal of construction on the way to the museum when we were there but it was worth the effort to get there. The presentation of the exhibits was first rate. We especially liked the Syncrude Gallery of Aborginal Culture. So much interesting information and great three denominational paintings makes each scene come to life. Then there... More

Pros: Some nice exhibits about the history of the people and wildlife of Alberta. Some living bugs and fish to see. A good collection of minerals. Cons: The museum has lots of stuffed animals (the taxidermy type) on display. They are the large part of at least two exhibits. Expected more fossils.
