Museum. The Royal Tyrrell Museum as it is officially known is a fine place to spend a few hours since it has so much to offer the interested visitor. On our arrival we saw all ages heading into the museum from young families to retired couples and the parking lot was virtually full when we arrived on Thursday, July 28 around 10:30 am. Although this area is world famous for its dinosaur fossils the museum is much more than that and offers a walk through the history of life on earth through close to 4 billion years of evolution. Obviously with so many dinosaur skeletons found locally the emphasis is on dinosaurs but the museum does cover lots of other ground from plate tectonics to ice age mammals. Although the parking lot was packed the museum doesn’t feel crowded inside and after exploring the inside museum displays for 90 minutes or so we headed outside to walk the Badlands Interpretative Trail. We also found using the audio guide very helpful and is worthwhile renting for your visit.
