AAA Editor Notes
Royal Alberta Museum is at 9828 103A Ave. Alberta's natural and human history museum houses a permanent collection in three main galleries, with changing displays and events scheduled throughout the year.
The Natural History gallery offers specimens of plants, animals, birds, live insects, fossils and minerals depicting the 1 billion-year odyssey from dinosaurs to rare minerals and gems. Fossils: Creatures from the Depths of Time displays extinct beasts from ancient Alberta, while The Bug Room contains live specimens from around the world. The Syncrude Gallery of Aboriginal Culture tells the story of 11,000 years of aboriginal history. The Wild Alberta gallery encourages visitors to look at Alberta's environment from a different perspective.
CLOSURE INFORMATION: The Royal Alberta Museum is closed through early 2018 as its collections are moved from the museum's former home on 102nd Avenue to its new facility at 9828 103A Ave.; phone ahead for updates.
