...celebrating life
What if you could walk through time and come face to face with animals that lived here thousands, even millions of years ago?

Nexen Science Hall

Take a few moments to try out our six new interactive stations installed in June 2006. They will introduce you to important concepts in palaeontology such as geologic time and continental drift, helping prepare you for your journey through the Museum.

Touch, play and explore as you learn more about how species adapt to changes around them and what makes the Red Deer River Valley the perfect spot for finding dinosaur remains. Ever wonder how a fossil is created? Discover the six steps fossils go through, from the animal's death to being displayed at the Museum.

Nexen Inc., a dynamic Canadian-based energy and chemicals company with operations world-wide, sponsors the Science Hall.

This site is sponsored by the Royal Tyrrell Museum Cooperating Society.
