Dinosaur Fossils in Drumheller Alberta Project 52 | Week 37

Monday, October 3, 2016

It’s been over a year since the boys became super interested in dinosaurs. And we’ve been talking about visiting Drumheller for at least as long – finally we can check this off the bucket list!

We met up with some friends in Calgary, who also have 2 little ones, a slightly older daughter and a son who is the same age as Odie and Tor. After getting the 3 boys together, I now know what it would be like to have triplets!

We really enjoyed the museum, it was way better than I could have ever imagined – we will definitely be back. The Royal Tyrell Museum contains the world’s—that’s right, the world’s!—largest collection of dinosaur fossils. It’s a must see for all aspiring palaeontologists!

The way they’ve laid it out is awesome: you travel back in time, millions of years, to the different time periods. Even before there were humans on this planet. Pretty amazing! We learned a lot about dinosaurs and other creatures. My boys were so excited to get up close and personal with some of our favourites—including touching a real, fossilized T-Rex!

It was an interesting place to shoot in, as museums are lit in a moody kind of a way with bright spotlights on various parts of the exhibit. I was definitely pushed out of my comfort zone, and did some experimenting.

Have you ever seen a dinosaur fossil?! I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
