In just a few days, the Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum will finally open its doors to the public. A free open house is set for Thursday, September 3rd from 4 to 10 p.m., when the Tour of Alberta makes its way through the County of Grande Prairie.
Located in Wembley, the $34 million facility is just a few kilometres away from one of the densest dinosaur bone beds in the world, the Pipestone Creek Bonebed. The museum features casts of many dinos that were found there, along with a working lab, and several interactive learning features. More displays will be added throughout September in time for the grand opening and Amber Ball on September 26th.
A ground breaking ceremony was held back in June 2013, and it was originally hoped the museum would open by June 2014.
