In the heart of downtown Edmonton, the Royal Alberta Museum (known to locals as “the RAM”) focuses on telling Alberta's legendary stories.

The museum is currently open Wednesday-Sunday from 10:00am to 4:00pm with new health and safety measures. Book your visit in advance here and be sure to continue practicing safe physical distancing, frequent hand-washing, and following the guidelines put in place to keep everyone safe.

Feed your curiosity

Each of the more than two million objects in the RAM’s collections have both a history and a story. When pieced together you’ll begin to discover what makes our fine province remarkable.

The Natural History Hall packs a billion years into one visit. Spot giant sloths, mastodons, sabre-toothed cats and full sized-moose as you take a journey through alpine meadows and windswept grasslands. Feel young again, discovering remarkable dinosaurs to giants of the Ice Age. Experience a history of Alberta through the eyes of the people who formed and transformed our province. Feel a chill down your spine as you meet the creepy and hairy - from black widow spiders to the hard-hitting Mantis Shrimp in the Bug Gallery!
