A museum inspired by the process of reconstructing dinosaurs

Located within the township of Wembley, Alberta, the Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum will be one of the world’s foremost museums of paleontology and natural history. It will tell the fascinating story of the Pipestone Creek Dinosaur Bonebed and how it was discovered and subsequently excavated. The narrative of the museum parallels the discovery of the bonebed, the paleontological process of reconstructing dinosaurs and the experience of this prehistoric time. The re-erected skeleton of the native Pachyrhinosaurus Lakustai dinosaur will be prominently featured at the museum entrance. The locally-sources timber structure and perforated acoustic wood finishes make for a warm yet dramatic sustainable building.
