“Best Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

Wonderful museum. Great exhibits. And fantastic Museum Fries! A must for the whole family. You could easily spend 4 or 5 hours there. Truly a great treat!

“Not enough variety”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

While I love going to the museum it only takes an hour to visit and doesn't change enough during the year. My small children have seen it all and are bored.

“Enjoyable each time we go.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

We have been going there since our now grown kids were little, my favorites are the geology and precious stones exhibit, the bird and butterfly exhibit and the natural habitat wildlife exhibits. The scenic artists and the mural work in the exhibits are beautifully done, and the native exhibit is really interesting too. A great time on a rainy or cold day, and a nice cafe and gift shop too.

“Visit the Royal Alberta Museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

This is a great museum, well documented, nicely done, and very educative. I learned a lot about the natural beauty of Alberta, its geolgical history and some about the local first nation inhabitants. A great museum, worth the detour.
