Weekly Photos: Day at the Royal Alberta Museum

Taxidermy Animals at Royal Alberta Museum

Recognize these animals?

Have you ever been to the Royal Alberta Museum? Then you've seen them. I'm sure they have been around since the museum opened up because I remember them, when I went as a child, some 20 some years ago.

That being said, I'm still partial to them :) Aren't they cute?

Needed to get out with the kidlets and we enjoyed the afternoon walking around at the different exhibits. My son asked me at least 101 questions with 101 "why's" to my answers, while my daughter just ran from exhibit to exhibit, not as interested.

Day at the Royal Alberta Museum

We didn't take any pictures outside since it was cold (the grounds are beautiful and I really love the buildings - must take photos another time!) But, I enjoyed taking some "artsy" photos from the different galleries.

Do any of you regularly visit museums or galleries?

I went to the RAM a couple of weeks ago on a Saturday morning. I had not been since I was in grade school & although I was not interested in all the exhibits the majority of them interested me. It made for a very enjoyable and cheap (half price before 11! A whole $5!)Saturday morning that I will be making the effort to repeat a few times a year :)

I know. I love how saturday mornings have a better price. I find that having kids has got me out more to such things. Though, they aren't itching to stay as long as I would like.

I really want to go to the Art Gallery Downtown sometime. Maybe make it a date night with the hubby.

Lovely photo's. I try and visit museums whenever, and wherever, I can. It's also nice that Sarah is down; in fact one of our first dates was the RAM.

I do suggest you hit up the AGA soon....mostly so I could see you blog Zinc ;)

I find I hit museums and galleries a lot more when we travel.

I have avoided reading anything on Zinc so that I can get my own impression when I eventually go. Whenever that may be! Hey Chris, you any good at babysitting?!? haha.
