I'm in Edmonton right now. All I wanted to see on my visit is the Royal museum. Checked trip advisor, asked directions to the museum from our hotel. We get there, it's closed. I felt like this was a big secret? No one knew?More

I loved so much of the contents, presentations and varieties that this museum had. Unlike some museums that is just boring throughout due to lack of its variety or by just focusing on educational aspects, this museum covered every aspects of human's interests. History is...More

As a youth I spent many hours wondering the halls of this great building, but alas this location has been closed and the new RAM has been moved to a more central, downtown location. Great place to learn and spend time with kids and families.

Have taken occasion to visit a few times. Well worth the time invested. Sufficient displays to keep small, young and older children interested. Takes considerable time to do all of the museum justice...or even just the areas you may have interest in for that matter....More
