The Royal Tyrrell Museum

The Royal Tyrrell Museum / Drumheller, Alberta, Canada – opened 1985.

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

Covid interrogation.
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.
PachyrhinosaurusAnd child.

No riders.
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 …

 

 

Dinosaur Drumheller …

There’s a lot of excellent vids on You Tube of the Alberta Badlands.
As I said earlier, when I used to explore here as young Teen I felt I was in going into areas that had never before been seen by any human being but me. 
This really fueled my wonder about all things of exploration and Paleontology.
Have a boo of this short, but entertaining video.

Come see this beautiful country for yourself some day.
