Race into the Royal Alberta Museum to see its latest exhibit
By Katrina Turchin | March 31, 2022
Do you have a need for speed? Or, maybe you just like looking at cool old cars. The Royal Alberta Museum’s new exhibit DRIVE: Reimagining the Ride features 12 vehicles from the Reynolds-Alberta Museum and the Remington Carriage Museum.
“Reimagining the Ride is an exhibition that focuses on the changing ways people have moved themselves across landscapes over time,” says Meaghan Patterson, executive director of the RAM. “We’ve got design-focused vehicles as well as vehicles that help sustain people.”
The exhibit features cars you won’t see on the roads today, like the 1964 Amphicar 770, the first amphibious vehicle. The one on display was bought by an Edmonton family in 1986 and was used for rides on the North Saskatchewan River. Another vehicle you’ll see is a Lethbridge Ice Company Ice Wagon, which was used for deliveries in the ‘90s.
The exhibit also features the Tinker Garage, a hands-on activity space for little ones.
