Highlights from two extraordinary collections, University of Alberta Laboratory for Vertebrate Paleontology and the Invertebrate Paleontology Collection, are available for public discovery in the Paleontology Museum. Specimens on display range in age from over 600 million to 10,000 years, from dinosaurs to fish to trilobites. Significant fossils highlight unique discoveries that address major evolutionary questions. The Museum is a valuable asset to the Department's students and researchers as well as to other paleontologists, and a delight to school groups and the general public.
The Museum is located in the Earth Sciences Building, room B-01, and is open from 8 am to 4 pm on weekdays, and is closed on weekends and holidays. Groups of five or more are requested to call in advance to confirm accessibility. Tours are welcome and available by appointment. Please call (780) 492-3265.
