Royal Tyrrell Museum
Highway 838 Midland Provincial Park
Drumheller, Alberta, Canada
The address of this one of a kind museum tells you pretty much everything you need to know about it. After all, what would you expect to find at a place located at the end of Dinosaur Trail?
The Royal Tyrrell Museum is the only museum in Canada dedicated to the science of paleontology, which means you're going to see a lot of very large, very fascinating and very old fossils here. Nine ever-changing galleries showcase over 365 million years of evolution on land and sea. You'll walk beside reconstructed skeletons of some of the largest and most fierce creatures ever to roam the earth, explore the deep blue body of water that once engulfed what is now the Alberta Badlands, and feel the chill of the Ice Age.
Outdoors there's plenty to explore too. Royal Tyrrell Museum is located in Midland Provincial Park - the heart of the Canadian Badlands, and the site of some of Alberta's most unique and impressive landforms. The hoodoos are haunting and ethereal, stark in their beauty, and a steadily eroding landmark that will at some point in time meet the same fate as the prehistoric beasts housed within the museum's walls.
