The Royal Tyrrell Museum’s Field Station is located in the Visitor Centre in Dinosaur Provincial Park, about 176 km southeast of the Museum’s location in Drumheller.
The Park was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979 due to its scientific significance. Even after a century of fossil collecting, the badlands of the Park continue to yield important fossils of a 75-million year old ecosystem.
Located 6 km from Drumheller, the Museum is nestled in the heart of the Canadian Badlands where fossil hunters have prospected for over a century.
