Virtual Visits

Explore our collection – in 3D!

Sometimes, a diorama is so realistic, you feel like you can climb right inside the scene. And now, you can - digitally! Check out our 3D models of dioramas and objects from the collection on Sketchfab. Zoom in, click around, and go inside history.

Tour the Learning Collection

What do a mammoth tooth, an oil lamp from the 1800s, and a pizza costume have in common? Join us for a tour through the Learning Collection to find out. If you've always wanted to go behind-the-scenes at RAM, now's your chance!

Making do: Socks for Playtime

Long before the days of mega toy stores and next-day shipping, many children’s toys were made out of materials found around the house. And since we’re all discovering new crafts and skills these days, we’ve created a fun tutorial for how to turn an old pair of socks into a sock mammoth!

Remarkable Stories

The mysterious gemstone button box

During the move downtown, RAM staff discovered some strange – and extremely fancy! – boxes. Boxes with no keys, and no way to open them. What could their purpose be? The answer might surprise you.

The most unique teeth in the world

You probably feel like you know what dinosaur teeth looked like, right? Carnivores like the T-rex had sharp, pointed teeth. Herbivores had flatter teeth, similar to humans. But there’s one species of dinosaur that has teeth unlike any we’ve ever seen. In fact, they’re different from any other animal ever. Find out more, on the blog.

The Fitted Sheet: An Alberta invention, and folding nightmare

Did you know the fitted sheet was invented in Alberta? Even more surprising, did you know there is a simple way to fold a fitted sheet, aside from the balled-up-in-the-linen-closet approach? Learn more about this Alberta bedsheet legacy, PLUS learn how to fold one properly, on the blog.

The mysterious unicorn specimen

Back in 2013, a team of geologists came upon a number of strange, helical forms. Could these be fossilized unicorn horns? Shark poop? Giant snails? Find out, on the blog.
