The building is beautiful - lots of marble, and easy access to floors. The special exhibits are well worth seeing. There is a nice gift shop and coffee place. Always worth a visit.

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!

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.

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.

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.
