Visitors are encouraged to purchase a timed entry ticket online, prior to arriving at the museum.

  • Each timed ticket slot is limited to 50 visitors.
  • In order to help us keep track of capacities, please arrive within 15 minutes of the start of your designated time slot.
  • Tickets are available for purchase up to two weeks in advance.
  • Visitors who fall under free admission categories, including Mammoth Pass holders, Experience Alberta History Pass holders and Indigenous peoples, can also pre-book a ticket in advance, to assist with capacity.
  • We cannot guarantee entry to anyone who arrives at the museum without a pre-booked, time- specific ticket.

How do I reserve a ticket as a Mammoth Pass holder?

As a Mammoth Pass holder, you will still enjoy free admission, but you also need to reserve a (free) ticket in advance.

Sign in to the ticketing site with your Mammoth Pass login, and tickets prices will automatically show as zero. Please book a ticket for each person in your group. Please be sure to bring your Mammoth Pass and a piece of ID with you when you arrive for your designated time slot.

If you don’t already have a Mammoth Pass login, you will need to first email RAM Admissions to request a login.
