This year, join us virtually to celebrate all things dinosaur! The Royal Saskatchewan Museum’s (RSM) Dinovember is set to present a roaring look at Saskatchewan’s home-grown dinosaurs, fossils, history and palaeontology, all from the safety of your own home.
“The story of Scotty, the World’s Largest T.rex lets us learn about Saskatchewan’s important natural history,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said. “This Dinovember, you can learn about this magnificent reptile and other creatures that once roamed Saskatchewan or swam in its huge inland sea, millions of years ago.”
There are interactive programs and activities for guests of all ages, available online.

All three were discovered by RSM paleontologists!
Snap a photo of the dinosaurs you’ve brought to life, and enter your photo through the Dinos in 3D contest form on our website. Photos will be judged in the following categories: Silliest, Hungriest and Best Friends. Winners will get a copy of the new book, Mega-Rex: A Tyrannosaurus Named Scotty.
