Dinosaur Discovery Gallery

Opened in 2007, the Dinosaur Discovery Gallery is the only facility of its kind in BC. Informative presentations tell the story of the dinosaur discoveries. On display are a number of authentic Tumbler Ridge dinosaur footprints and full-scale paleontological exhibits.

 

Major Accomplishments:

In 2010 the Peace River Paleontology Research Center, the scientific arm of the museum, headed by internationally renowned paleontologist Rich McCrea unearthed the most complete Hadrosaur skeleton ever found.

In 2014 Rich and his wife and manager of collections at the museum, Lisa Buckely, published a paper that sent shockwaves through the international scientific community effectively proving, from trackways discovered in Tumbler Ridge, that T-Rexs were pack hunters. Because one wasn’t scary enough!
