Royal Tyrrell Museum Update #5: Kong Long Exhibit
This exhibit of Chinese and Canadian dinosaurs at the Royal Tyrrell
Museum of Paleontology, Drumheller, Alberta, Canada opened earlier
than planned; it has been open for a week or so now. 23 semi-trailer
trucks delivered the exhibits. The total area of exhibition covers
nearly 9,000 square feet. I had a look at the exhibit today and
quickly jotted down which mounts are there:
1 original Tyrannosaurus skull.
1 panel mounted Tyrannosaurus in death pose.
Open (completely free-standing) mounts of Sinraptor, Monolophosaurus,
Mamenchisaurus, Psittacosaurus, 3 adult Pachyrhinosaurus, 1 baby
Pachyrhinosaurus, 1 baby Hypacrosaurus.
Panel mounts of juvenile Bellusaurus, Sinraptor, Monolophosaurus.
Skeletons left as is in the matrix are: Sinornithoides, Leptoceratops, baby
Protoceratops, adult Protoceratops (mostly skull only).
Isolated skulls of Corythosaurus, Lambeosaurus, Pinacosaurus, Gobisaurus.
2 skeletal mounts of baby Hypacrosaurus.
Eggs of segnosaurs, possible ornithomimids, Hypacrosaurus.
"Touchy-feely" anterior half of original Pachyrhinosaurus skull.
1 Dsungaripterus (pterosaur) skull and panel mounted skeleton of same.
Aptian-Albian-aged medium-sized tracks of unidentified theropod from Grande
Many side exhibits on pterosaurs, turtles, lizards and other smaller fossils.
Several video displays relating to the Canada-China-Alberta Dinosaur
This exhibit will be up for the entire summer, I'm not sure when it will be
coming down. I'll let readers know once I get this information.
