The Royal Alberta Museum rests on Treaty Six territory and the homeland of the Métis. Many of the objects in RAM's collections and many of the stories presented in our galleries are Indigenous. In the spirit of reconciliation, and to honour the unique relationship between Indigenous Peoples of Alberta and the Crown, the museum extends free admission to Indigenous Peoples.

General Admission is free for those with a Cultural Access Pass/Canoo Pass, CFOne Card, and for healthcare aide attendants accompanying paying visitors with disabilities.
