The Royal Alberta Museum was on of the atteactions I looked forward to most on my trip to Edmonton and at the time I did not know that they were moving locations. The building and surrounding area is so beautiful. The exhibits were very informative and well put together. We passed through fairly quickly since we had more to do... More

The exhibits when we traveled were quite interesting. The Aboriginal Culture exhibit was very eye opening to the treatment of the people in the area and the Natural History exhibit was very informative.

This museum is always fascinating and I never fail to leave without learning something new. The exhibits are great for learning more about the city and the province

I went to this museum as a kid on field trips, forgot how informative some of the displays are. Glad I went when I did as I was not aware it was closing. Stop in there before the end of the year as a piece of history will ending and another beginning.

This is a very good museum. There are lots of natural history displays and dioramas. Some interesting live exhibits. It is worth a visit.

We went to the museum with a friend and her family. There were 5 kids aging from 3-14 and 4 adults. Everyone had a good time. We ended up splitting up and meeting up through out the museum. The kids all had a good time. The only bad part was the pre-made burgers int he cafeteria, we didn't find out... More

This is a great big museum which is in the process of relocating in the City centre of Edmonton. At present it is in one of the suburbs and difficult to reach by public transit (not least because a vital bridge was being rebuilt when we visited). We enjoyed 1/2 a day a this museum, and the kids especially enjoyed... More

Probably one of the coolest places Edmonton has to visit, especially on a week day when it is slower. The live bugs are absolutely amazing and if you're lucky you can handle a few of them. Always something going on here, and definitely worth the entrance fee. See it before it relocates!

There were many exhibits and very informative. We really enjoyed the Aboriginal exhibit. Very accessible with baby stroller and a five year old. It was worth the visit especially when it was free for us.

Our new museum downtown will also be very 'kid friendly' - in fact we're even building a special children's museum within the museum! Hope you'll visit us in our new location :) More
