Dinosaur Adventures Attractions & Entertainment

There are so many dinosaur fossils in some parts of Alberta there’s a rule against pocketing them from the ground. Literally. Some of the biggest finds on earth have been uncovered at Dinosaur Provincial Park. There’s plenty to explore on your own, but a guided tour can add another layer of discovery. ● See it: The famed Royal Tyrrell Museum has one of the world’s largest displays of full dinosaur skeletons. ● Only here: Do a real dig with a paleontological guide. You’ll uncover fossils no human has seen. Ever. ● Unparalleled: On the north end of the Fossil Trail, visit the Pipestone Creek bonebeds where hundreds of dinosaurs died. Bad for them; awesome for paleontologists.
