Join Dr. Philip Currie and other renowned palaeontologists from the 
Royal Tyrrell Museum on a 9 day Dino Tour through Alberta. You'll take

famous dinosaur quarries, fossil localities, and research facilities 
in North America. 

This exclusive trip includes stops at:
                
        The Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller, one of the largest 
        palaeontological museums in the world. Explore the world

        dinosaur skeletons, most found right here in Alberta. Tour 
        behind the scenes with research staff to visit the preparation 
        laboratories and the collections area, where you'll see the 
        largest accumulation of Cretaceous dinosaur fossils anywhere 
        in the world. Your visit to the Tyrrell Museum culminates with
