The Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum
The Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum will be a hub for paleontology and science in the Peace Region of Alberta, Canada. The region itself is swiftly becoming globally known for its incredible fossil resources and this world-class facility will ‘bring them to life’ for thousands of locals and visitors every year. Focusing on new discoveries and finds, the interactive exhibits are being designed to educate and delight everyone from toddlers to their grandparents.
The museum will boast a footprint of 41,000 square feet on a 10-acre site in the Town of Wembley, AB, directly adjacent to the Alaskan Highway, a popular tourist route. Beyond an exhibit space of 12,000 square feet, the Philip J. Currie Dinosaur Museum will also feature a scientific laboratory, fossil curatorial space, two SMART technology classrooms, a 64-seat theatre, restaurant, gift shop, conference room, tourist visitor services and parking spaces for 120 vehicles. A host of studies, including economic impact, feasibility, and tourism impact, have shown that the museum will significantly boost economic and cultural development in the region. And beyond that, it’s going to provide thousands of families with wonderful days filled of discovery and fun.
