  TYRRELL MUSEUM   (Near Drumheller)
   TYRRELL MUSEUM PICTURES   BADLANDS PICTURES

The Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology
Home to the most extensive and spectacular displays of dinosaur skeletons in the World. This is an astounding place. The displays are made even more fascinating by the interpretive programs available. Stroll the Prehistoric garden, watch a video, listen to an audio guide, watch actual museum techs preparing newly discovered fossils or join in one of the explorer programs. See the Burgess Shale Exhibit, a 3 dimensional peek into the marine world of dinosaurs. You will be amazed at the gigantic fossil of a fish, which clearly shows the fossil of another fish that it had just swallowed! The museum is north of Drumheller in southern Alberta and a 3.5 hour drive south of Edmonton.
Serious dinosaur fans should visit the Field Station of the Royal Tyrrell Museum.

The Dinosaur Trail
This is a 48 kilometer circular driving route. Start and end in the town of Drumheller. The trail includes the Tyrrell Museum, and amazing badlands scenery.  Stop at the Horshoe Canyon Lookout and see a mini "Grand Canyon".   Keep on the lookout for the Bleriot Ferry, the "Biggest Little Church on Earth" and Midland Provincial Park.

Dinosaur Provincial Park Open May through October, is where you can walk in the footstep of the mightiest creatures that walked our planet. Imagine Albertosaurus (Like T-Rex), crashing through ancient forests in hot pursuit of its prey. The Red Deer River and rain and winds have laid bare a treasure trove of fossils in one of the most productive fossil beds. This is now a Unesco World Heritage Sight (1979) and is an open-book window into life 75 million years ago. This is Canada's most extensive badlands, where you can see the strange formations and perhaps some of the endangered life in this mini-habitat.  Located Northeast of Brooks on the Red Deer River.
