Royal Tyrrell Museum

Royal Tyrrell Museum

The Royal Tyrrell Museum is Canada’s only museum dedicated exclusively to the science of palaeontology. In addition to housing one of the world’s largest displays of dinosaurs, the Museum offers a wide variety of creative, fun, and educational programs that bring the prehistoric past to life.

The Museum is operated by the Government of Alberta under the Ministry of Culture, Multiculturalism and Status of Women.
Journey through time and come face-to-face with some of Canada's mightiest dinosaurs. With thirteen ever-evolving galleries, fun hands-on activities, and the rugged beauty of Alberta's badlands, there's something for everyone.

Take a journey through time and explore Earth’s 4.6-billion-year history, and the plants and animals that once lived in ancient Alberta. Fossils occur in virtually all areas of our province, and their ages span a vast amount of time: 1.5 billion to 10,000 years.

The Royal Tyrrell Museum is owned and operated by the Government of Alberta through the Ministry of Culture, Multiculturalism and Status of Women.
