T Rex Discovery Centre Eastend
Where are we going today?
Dinosaurs are fascinating creatures, and there is SO much to learn about them! So why not visit a place that is ALL about those incredible pre-historic animals - like the T-rex Discovery Centre in Saskatchewan!
The T-rex Discovery Centre is located in Eastend, and features exhibits all about the dinosaurs of the province, as well as marine reptiles AND prehistoric mammals. Pretty cool!
The exhibits inside are a great way for kids to come face to face with some pretty special skeletons, and learn about this time in history.
The Cretaceous exhibit lets you explore the dinosaurs and prehistoric reptiles that use to dominate the area. It's here you can see the very first T-rex skeleton that was ever found in Saskatchewan - and it's 65 million years old! Introducing...Scotty!
When you visit, you can get a close look at the dinosaurs and their fossils, and learn very fun facts, like that the Cretaceous Period was actually the end of the Age of Dinosaurs. See - you're learning already!
Saskatchewan After The Dinosaurs is an exhibit that looks at the environment and the creatures that would have called southern Saskatchewan home around 60 million years ago. There are full size models of prehistoric animals, including a fish eating reptile called Champsosaurusas!
So why not grab the family and spend the day with Scotty and friends, actually looking history in the face as you learn all about it!
Great family fun in Canada!
