Visited on a weekday and it was quiet. The museum is new and it’s gorgeous! Clean and modern. Loved the exhibit. There are two main exhibits - human history and animal/ nature focused. Great place to spend 2 hours! Would recommend.

A nice place to sit downstairs in the winter and have a coffee. The exhibits are ok. It's hard to read some of the info at the exhibits. Lighting is bad and glare.

There's nothing like this in Alberta, and we think it's likely the very best museum in the province. It covers human and natural history, and their displays are quite spectacular. They change up techniques quite a bit, so there's no monotony here, with videos, large...More

I was quite impressed with the overall organization of the extensive exhibits on the two floors of the RAM. Both the Human History floor and the Natural History Floor were extremely detailed and diverse, designed to keep visitors engaged and informed. It was very busy...More
