Child-friendly, of course. But did you know the Royal Alberta Museum is duckling-friendly, too?
This morning, we discovered a mother duck and her little ones ambling around in the closed courtyard at our Glenora site. Since the babies are too young to fly out, several members of our life sciences team carefully rescued the feathery family, and released them down the hill from the museum in...

Happy #NationalAboriginalDay! Our Wonder of the Week is a collection of Siksika paint applicators (c. late 1800s) made of bison bone. First Nations artists once used bison hip and shoulder bones as paintbrushes. The porous bone held the paint, letting it flow smoothly onto a hide surface. The sharpened tips worked like a pen. Artists made paints by grinding mineral and plant pigments in...

Who's hungry for a hundred-year-old biscuit?!
A century ago, a World War One soldier was issued this primitive incarnation of today’s energy bar. Called "hardtack", the biscuit made of flour and water had to be soaked in hot liquid (coffee or tea) to soften it up – hence nicknames like "molar breakers" and "tooth dullers."
