Royal Alberta Museum Reopened

Edmonton (ATB): After years of construction, moving millions of objects, creating new galleries, installing exhibits and putting on finishing touches, RAM welcomed its first visitors in its new location last week.
Premier Notley officially opened the RAM, hosting a celebration that included an Indigenous blessing and the dramatic unveiling of two bronze mammoth sculptures that are a focal point of the museum’s vast, light-filled lobby. Mammoths have long been part of the museum’s identity.
“Alberta is a province full of compelling stories. The Royal Alberta Museum gives Albertans the opportunity to live in and share those stories, told from many perspectives, including those of Indigenous communities. These stories will provide us all a greater sense of the people, places and identity of Alberta and are an important contribution to our cultural landscape.” expressed Rachel Notley, Premier
“Welcome to the new Royal Alberta Museum. Today, we celebrate a new chapter in our province’s history. As one of the province’s greatest cultural attractions and a hub for all things Alberta, this museum is more than history. It is a place where art, design, community, research, science, identity and language all come together to tell the stories of Alberta.” Stated Ricardo Miranda, Minister Alberta Culture and Tourism
“This grand opening event marks the completion of a vital new landmark for the City of Edmonton and all of Alberta. The Royal Alberta Museum’s stunning new home will contribute greatly to the vibrancy of the downtown core and be a premier tourist attraction that will draw visitors from near and far. Our government is proud to be investing in projects that preserve and celebrate our rich heritage while contributing to economic growth and dynamic community development.” Said Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Natural Resources
“I am pleased to celebrate the opening of this new cultural facility in the heart of Edmonton. The Government of Canada recognizes that investing in cultural facilities helps create inclusive community spaces where people can come together and celebrate the diverse experiences that have shaped our country. I am eager to see how this new attraction fosters economic prosperity for Edmonton and for the province of Alberta.” Opined Randy Boissonnault, MP for Edmonton Centre, on behalf of François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities
“What an honour and privilege it is to be home to the largest museum in Western Canada, and one of the top museums in the country. On this special day and in the days to come, this museum will allow us to honour those that came before us and inspire curious minds to explore culture and history right in the heart of our beautiful city.” Concluded Don Iveson, mayor, City of Edmonton.
Another great attraction when visitors visit downtown, Edmonton.
