Our ScientistsLife of a Palaeontologist
Working as a palaeontologist at the Royal Tyrrell Museum means that in the span of a year you can go from working in the field prospecting for, and collecting, fossils to spending many hours in your lab studying specimens. The work is varying but often very rewarding.
Watch as fossils found right here in Alberta are prepared by our technicians for research and display.
