History is constantly changing. And, the Royal Alberta Museum has created space that will feature updated displays at different times throughout the year. The museum's Textile Gallery and Alberta Stories Gallery are two gems to be discovered in the permanent Human History Gallery. The displays presented here will enable visitors to engage in Alberta's history and contemporary stories. Using the museum's collection or borrowed artifacts, most exhibitions will be developed in-house or in collaboration with other stakeholders. Changing Galleries will always focus on Alberta's cultural history.
The Royal Alberta Museum has an extensive textile collection. It includes quilts, clothing, uniforms, flags, tapestries dating from the distant past to present day. The gallery for the display of textiles has been created to allow for the greater and safer display of these collections. It has been designed with environmental concerns specific to textiles in mind. Proper conditions shall alleviate conservation concerns and better showcase these amazing collections to the public.
