    Scientifically Correct?
    Of course not! Our goal is to make “art” not “science” therefore many of the dinosaurs and other sculptures are not scientifically accurate. If you are looking for scientifically accurate dinosaurs, you will love a visit to the world-renowned Royal Tyrrell Museum of Paleontology.

    Located throughout Drumheller!
