Today we went to the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller. As always, the museum is amazing, the Burgess Shale room rocks, and John Acorn videos play everywhere. If I was running the gift shop there would be glow in the dark opabinia and anomolocaris toys, and multi-colored plastic combs that look like hallucinaginia, but other than that, it's pretty spot on.
After lunch we traveled around the town a bit. If you are a lover of Big Concrete Dinosaurs, the cheesier the better, Drumheller is your heaven. The things are everywhere. There are dinosaurs at gas stations, drug stores, and at practically every bus stop. Even the alleys have fantastic prehistoric murals painted on the brick walls. Here is but a small sampling of the wonders you can discover in this little town in the badlands of Alberta.
