Currie Dinosaur Museum is just off Hwy. 43 at 9301 112th Ave. Named after Canada's leading paleontologist, the state-of-the-art facility showcases fossils, core samples and other artifacts from the Pipestone Creek bone bed, which was discovered by a high-school teacher in 1973. The museum's galleries also include dinosaur reconstructions, displays about oil and gas extraction in Alberta, and temporary exhibits. Other features of the 10-acre complex are the 60-seat Aykroyd Family Theater, an outdoor fossil walk and a children's playground. Helicopter tours over the bone bed are available. Food is available.
