An eclectic collection of exhibits, extremely well presented. The site of the museum in an older area of Edmonton by the river is wonderful. Mixed feelings about it closing and being moved downtown.

About 20 minutes by bus from the Downtown area. Four halls of exhibits. Give yourself at least two and half hours to get round the exhibits. If you like museums, you'll like this one.

The museum has an wonderful display of First Nations life past and present. You can wander through the tipis and sit beneath Northern Lights. Their story is told with paintings, and objects, music and photos. However, our family's favorite area is the Wild Alberta area -- a series of dioramas showing the animals of Alberta in their natural habitat. The background paintings are amazing, and it feels like you could walk right into the diorama. There are lots of "hands-on" activities for adults and children as well. Story time for little ones is special each morning around 10 am. The geology displays and the Bug room are also fun. As well, there is always a traveling display -- this time it was the world of Dogs. The history of dogs was well displayed. We are never disappointed with our visits to our museum.

I love the Royal Alberta Museum. Go visit and see for yourself! Also a great location for weddings. They always have a special exhibit going on, so watch out for ones during the year that pique your interest.

I very much enjoy practically any museum but especially this one as so much of the history - natural and man-made - is offered up in the museum. I've been coming here for over 40 years and continue to enjoy the experience.
