Effective December 13, 2020, Royal Alberta Museum is temporarily closed.

Stronger health measures come into effect province wide on 12:01 a.m. on December 13. Part of those measures include the temporary closure of museums, libraries and galleries; this includes the province’s network of historic sites, museums and archives. These measures will be in until further notice.

The safety and protection of our patrons and staff are our top priority. Please watch our website for future updates regarding our facility.

The Museum Shop will continue to offer shipping and curbside pickup for purchases made through the online Shop.

We thank everyone who has visited us safely since the past few months. We ask that you continue to follow alberta.ca/covid19 for the latest information on this situation.

Please take care,
Staff of the Royal Alberta Museum
