Dig Into the Prehistoric Past

October 14, 2016

More than 40 species of dinosaurs once roamed Alberta. Very few places on earth showcase the remains of so many species and complete dinosaur skeletons. A hub for palaeontology, Alberta boats two world-leading facilities: the Royal Tyrrell Museum and the recently opened Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum, both strategically situated near some of the most important dinosaur fossil locations in the world.
  • The newly opened Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum was the fastest museum project executed in Canadian history, and received the Outstanding Achievement Award (Science/Exhibition), conferred by the Canadian Museums Association.
  • Its use of augmented reality platforms brings dinosaurs to life, while chase scenes through the galleries are a highlight for visitors.
  • Travellers can participate in Jurassic adventures in Dinosaur Provincial Park and the Canadian Badlands. Unique experiences include: guided excavations (with real palaeontologists), fossil safaris, hiking over bone beds and assembling an exact replica of a dinosaur skeleton.
