There were several special exhibits which were sort of interesting but frankly the portions of their permanent collection that were on view were more enjoyable. The senior rate for admission is $6.50.

Part of museum was closed for renovation, so felt like I got less than what I paid for. There was one exhibit of famous people who died early in life. A book was available that told you interesting facts about each.

Go to the U of A website to find out what exhibit is presently there. It's free and it will put you in the heart of U of A. Take time to ride the streetcar and explore the area's restaurants, etc.
