Royal Tyrrell Museum

An alphabetized fossil encyclopedia, a page on oil and gas exploration, an online Burgess Shale exhibit, and a virtual tour are among the features of this Website of Alberta's Royal Tyrell Museum. The virtual tour takes users everywhere from the juvenile Albertosaurus skeleton to the cafeteria. Although the tour is mainly designed for those preparing to visit the museum, virtual tour-goers can find informative text and images. Topics presented on the tour include fossilization processes, "continental drift," geologic time, fossil plants, and geologically significant areas of Canada such as Lake Wapiti, B.C. and Dinosaur Provincial Park. The brief descriptions and color images of major dinosaur genera are sure to be a hit. The Oil and Gas page describes how fossil fuels form and provides links to information on the fossils of Alberta's petroleum-bearing rock formations. Visitors to the site can also get an inside look at the Royal Tyrell Museum's fossil and rock digs through posted photos and research descriptions. This very thorough Website is a must-see for K-12 and introductory-level college students.
