Fossil Favourites from across Canada


To celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canada’s Confederation, members of the Alliance of Natural History Museums of Canada (ANHMC) have collaborated to develop a national travelling exhibition, produced by the Royal BC Museum, and travelled by the Canadian Museum of Nature. Since 2002, the ANHMC network shares information and educates Canadians about natural history collections and museum research across the country.



This exhibition features contributions from 11 ANHMC member museums across Canada, showcasing noteworthy fossils that represent significant discoveries and research at these institutions.

Manitoba Museum
New Brunswick Museum
Nova Scotia Museum of Natural History
Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre
