This will be the largest museum in Western Canada. The new building provides double the exhibition space, creating more opportunities for visitors to interact with the museum and with each other. Installation of the structural steel is almost complete. Work is now underway to install interior partitions, the roofing, and glazing and stone panels to the exterior walls. In addition, the design team has been busy working with Royal Alberta Museum experts (and have engaged the city, project neighbours, and key stakeholders) to refine the design of the new museum, and museum staff are working on plans for the interior exhibit areas. Construction is projected for completion in 2016. Work to acclimatize the building and install the exhibits and collections will follow.
