Royal Alberta Museum offers tours & exhibition for both the human and natural history artifacts in Alberta. It was named the Provincial Museum of Alberta until 24 May 2005 when Queen Elizabeth II visited, bestowing royal patronage. Also on the premises is Government House that is used by the Alberta Government Caucus. The museum itself has three permanent galleries: Wild Alberta, Syncrude Gallery of Aboriginal Culture, and Natural History.
In 2011, the Government of Alberta announced plans to build a new $340 million home for the Royal Alberta Museum. The museum will be moved from its current location near Government House in Glenora to Downtown Edmonton at 103A Avenue and 99th Street. Construction is scheduled to completion in 2015. The government plans to continue using the current site of the Royal Alberta Museum for Government House and a new residence for the Lieutenant Governor.
