Happy Birthday, Canada!! ~ Alberta, 2006

Drumheller, Alberta

Royal Tyrrell Museum ~ Recovering from the collapse of the coal industry, Drumheller’s community leaders approached the Alberta Government in the mid-1970s looking for ways to bolster the local economy. In the late 1970s, it was decided that a new facility for studying palaeontology would be built in Midland Provincial Park, relocating and expanding the existing palaeontology program of the Provincial Museum of Alberta (now the Royal Alberta Museum).
