It seems that there is a much greater interest in dinosaurs during my lifetime. Young children can remember the oddest names for those prehistoric animals, and many have a bag full of toys to play dinosaur stories with their friends.
When I was growing up, there was this large dinosaur at the Calgary Zoo, and we always looked forward to having some time to climb up the tail. In the last few years, the Zoo has upgraded the Prehistoric Park and it has become a highly favored spot for family fun.
The Royal Tyrrell Museum, located in Drumheller, Alberta, is a Canadian tourist attraction and a centre of palaeontological research noted for its collection of more than 130,000 fossils. It is located about one hour and thirty minutes from Calgary, in the Badlands of eastern Alberta. It would take too long for me to tell you all about it, so I am including a link to the website so that you can see photos and learn more this famous site in our province.
ROYAL TYRRELL MUSEUM,
By the way, I almost forgot to tell you that I was born in Drumheller, long before the dinosaurs became a tourist attraction.
