University of Alberta Palaeo Museum

The University of Alberta Laboratory for Vertebrate Paleontology has a small public gallery in the Earth Sciences Building. Although small, it has some very fine specimens.

The dinosaurs may be the showiest and biggest specimens on display, but there are also excellent trilobites and jawless fish.

Champsosaurus lindoei, swimming away.

One of the most important dinosaur specimens is UALVP 2, a skeleton and excellent skull of Stegoceras.

And there are TWO ankylosaur specimens on display! The skull belongs to UALVP 31.

UALVP 10 is a great specimen of Gorgosaurus. Many of the dinosaur specimens on display were collected by George Sternberg, who collected and prepared for a few seasons in the 1920s.
