The Royal Tyrrell Museum
The Royal Tyrrell Museum is not really an inspiring piece of Architecture.
It appears academic and clinical. That's because it's a World Class research center for Paleontology
- housing several labs and research facilities
- apart from it's function as an amazing museum.
There's a few things to see outside though before you go in:
Albertosaurus - An enthusiastic Greeter
Didn't used to be part of a Tour.
On normal (pre-Covid) days there will be a dozen tour buses out front.
People come from all over the world and the museum would usually be packed.
Sadly, much of the time right now the Museum is closed.
Enthusiastic tourists have occasionally damaged the models.
So they must be protected. Incredibly for the first several years Admission was FREE!
Then they went to a donation box.
Finally they realized that people would pay anything to get in here.
But it's worth it.
See you inside ...
