RAM RE-OPENING

Beginning Saturday, May 16, the Royal Alberta Museum is open to the public with limited capacity. Visitors must purchase a timed entry ticket online, prior to arriving at the museum.

We are taking great care to ensure the safety of our visitors, staff, and the public.

This includes:

  • Reducing days and hours of operation
  • Limiting capacity numbers for the building and each gallery
  • Requiring your family unit to stay together, enforcing physical distancing, providing spacing ‘dots’ for line ups and having one-way route through all galleries.
  • Admission through timed entry tickets is available for purchase online, to control capacity and allow contactless purchasing.
  • Removing hands-on interactives and closing high-touch spaces. This includes closure of the Children’s Gallery.
  • Providing access to hand sanitizer and hand washing throughout our facility.
  • Increasing cleaning and disinfecting throughout our facility.

Please visit this page for important information for your visit to RAM.
