I can't wait until the new museum opens. The old one was great to take the kids too when they were young. However it really needed a facelift. The new museum will rock the kasba.

The museum always changes things up with a theme. So it has the staple good stuff but you can go back more than once because they have special exhibits...a must see in Edmonton

Although there is not much places you can visit in Edmonton, RAM is a nice place to check out. Not very big, but pretty neat.

The museum tends to keep changing some of their exhibits. Some of the past exhibits were Queen Elizabeth II her self, Lego, and Butterflies. All of the permanent exhibits are also interesting. Upstairs they have live insects (creepy crawlys like spiders and cockroaches). If you live in Edmonton, and want to take your children somewhere that will captivate their interests,... More

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.

Love it here everytime, the location is the greatest, real mistake to move this place. Will probably never attend again once they move to a rough area of Edmonton. Does not make sense to leave such a historic and beautiful area of the city.

Hello! Thanks for taking the time to express your concerns. We've actually talked about why the Government of Alberta decided to move the RAM to a new location on our website. You can read more about it here: http://www.royalalbertamuseum.ca/new/faq.cfm Basically the museum needs enough space to display its growing collections, and to host major international touring exhibitions. Beyond that, there... More

We have enjoyed this museum several times and brought friends and family to see it when they were visiting. The Wild Alberta exhibit is educational and a great way to learn about wildlife from Alberta. We also love the rocks and minerals section and bug room. The First Nation exhibit is informative and respectful. It is a must-see museum in... More
