You’ll see fascinating fossils from our Collection and have the opportunity to ask questions of our Education experts. Let us bring the Museum to you in these exciting virtual experiences!

We Dig Dinos!

T. rex, raptors, and Triceratops! Learn about the dinosaur superstars and their family groups during this live, 45-minute webcast with the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology. Located in the Alberta badlands, we’ll virtually venture into the field to see how fossils are discovered and excavated. We will learn how fossils help us explore our ancient world using specimens from our Collection. The program concludes with a Q&A session with a Museum expert. We sure dig dinos, and hope you do too!

Up Close and Palaeo Jr.

Time to get up close…to palaeontology! Explore the process of fossilization and the differences between the types of fossils. Take a look behind the scenes to follow the journey of a fossil from its discovery, excavation in the field, and preparation at the Museum. The program concludes with an interactive Q&A period where we use images, videos, and real fossils to complement our responses.

Royal Tyrrell Museum Virtual Visit

Take a tour of the Royal Tyrrell Museum without leaving home! During this interactive virtual visit, we'll guide you through our world-renowned galleries and exhibits. Marvel at creatures from ancient seas, explore Dinosaur Hall, and discover how life carried on after the catastrophic asteroid impact 66 million years ago. The program concludes with a Q&A session with a Museum expert.

First Steps: Dinosaur Eggs & Babies

From little feet to towering titans, we'll explore the mysterious history of dinosaur eggs and babies. Learn about egg-citing discoveries, how different dinosaurs protected their babies, and what fossils can tell us about parental care, in this 45-minute webcast. The program concludes with a Q&A session with a Museum expert.
