Royal Alberta Museum
Pictographs to petroglyphs to prehistoric planteaters… from Grizzlies and Golden Eagles to Bison and bugs… from Badlands' Rattlers to Black Widow Spiders… from mountains and forests to the windswept prairie.
Visiting the Wild Alberta Gallery is like no other museum experience in Canada. It is a journey across, over and under Alberta's varied landscape and biodiversity.
Our Natural History Gallery packs a billion years into one visit. See spectacular minerals and gems; discover dinosaurs, Sabre-toothed cats and even a mammoth. The ever-popular Bug Room offers visitors an opportunity to meet some of the biggest insects in the world — alive and up close.
Stories spanning 11,000 years track an extraordinary history of Alberta's First Peoples, from the arrival of the Ice Age to the present day. Take the whole family on a journey of discovery. In the Syncrude Gallery of Aboriginal Culture.
