Royal Tyrrell Museum

Recommended Posts

Troodon

One of the finest museums in the world dedicated mostly to dinosaurs located in Drumheller, Alberta. I'll post a few pictures but I'm sure others will add to the library of images.

All of these are Campanian in age.

Edmontonia rugosidens skull its a nodosaur.

Don Brinkman took me to the back room and showed me a Daspletosaurus Maxilla and Pre-Maxilla just out of prep. The maxilla is stunning.

Great photos Troodon.

Your photos and the others from this growing thread, (A trip to the Museum) have great examples of how Museums mark Fossils, and the museums short ID cards kept with the Fossils. Many people ask this question and now have many examples.

Definitely one of the best in the world thanks to Currie , unfortunately it is truly in the middle of nowhere. I have never been but a friend did go and brought me back a guidebook and a tee shirt. He thought the place was amazing and that was like 10 years ago.

That's an understatement it is truly in the middle of nowhere. If your traveling near Calgary it'said doable and we'll worth the trip.

Only major museum, that I'm aware of, that is located right in a collecting area.

Love this place. It was actually a trip there early this year reignited my interest in dinosaurs, I spent hours happily wandering around, great exhibits and superbly presented.

Also has a fantastic location smack in the middle of the Albertia badlands.

They didn't let me in the back room though...........maybe I'll name check you next time!

Question is, who has the better collection, Royal Tyrrell or Royal Troodon museum?

It is awesome and located in the middle of a great collecting area. You are very fortunate to have Philip as your guest and that is an excellent museum for him to visit. If you ever have an opportunity would love to see pictures posted from that locality
