This important announcement is followed by a general program description:
Unfortunately we will not be offering our Museum School program in 2015-16/2016-17. During this time, the museum will be partially or fully closed as we continue planning work on the new museum and then begin to move downtown. Our current galleries will turn into construction zones as specimens, objects and dioramas are removed to help populate more than 82,000 square feet in our new galleries. We will miss you, but we are excited about all we will have to offer in the new museum!
Once the new Museum opens we plan to offer the program again. It will continue to be a 5-day program that invites you to use the Royal Alberta Museum as your classroom. You will explore our exhibits and grounds, hear from guest speakers, and participate in a Behind the Scenes Tour. Your Museum School week will still immerse you in a community facility rich in resources and experiences. By walking in the footsteps of museum staff, exploring collections and recording thoughts in special journals, you will learn about Alberta's natural and cultural histories and expand the way you look at your community and your province.
