About the Museum

New Museum


Welcome to RAM!

Welcome to the Royal Alberta Museum (RAM)! After nearly three years of closure, we opened the doors to our brand new location in downtown Edmonton on October 3, 2018 with six days of free admission attended by more than 41,000 visitors. Our new museum is more than just a thoughtful, beautifully designed space, it's an authentic reflection of where Alberta is today and will be in the decades to come. It represents the new energy of Alberta, the diversity of our culture and tells our story with a new boldness and confidence. It's a place where you'll find 5.1 million uniquely Albertan stories just waiting to be told. With twice as much space as the former location, expanded permanent galleries, and a brand new experience for visitors of every age—you'll be able to feed your curiosity year round.
