 New attractions abound at Royal Tyrrell Museum

dinosaur.jpg Those who visited the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology last summer will notice that a lot has changed in a year. The museum has been revamping its displays since the fall, and has many new sights to offer tourists this year. The first thing returning visitors may notice is the globe which originally stood at the entrance to the museum’s gallery has been moved, and replaced with the new “Cretaceous Alberta” exhibit. Cretaceous Alberta is an accurate re-creation of Alberta during the Cretaceous period, and prominently features three immaculately crafted Albertosaurus statues from famed artist Brian Cooley, which arrived in October 2006.
