EDMONTON – It’s a project that’s received little attention since construction started, but the new Royal Alberta Museum building is making its presence known.

“Probably six months from now, seven months from now, we’re going to take possession of a finished building,” Chris Robinson, executive director of the museum, explained.

Robinson recently gave Global News a tour of the busy construction project.

“Just about two years ago, we had a blessing to start construction,” Robinson said.

“To me, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” Robinson enthusiastically explained.  “It’s fascinating.”

The museum comes with a price tag of just over $375 million, and the project is on time and on budget.

An official opening is planned for late 2017 or early 2018.
