Day 3

Royal Tyrrell Museum

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 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. You are in the heart of the Canadian Badlands, home to the hoodoos – unique and impressive landforms that are 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.
