The Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre, located in Morden, Manitoba, is a premier destination for paleontology enthusiasts and curious visitors alike. Founded in 1974, the museum is dedicated to the preservation, research, and public education of prehistoric fossils found in the region, particularly those from the Late Cretaceous period, approximately 80 million years ago.

One of the main attractions of the Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre is its extensive collection of marine reptile fossils, including the largest collection of marine reptile fossils in Canada. The museum's star attraction is "Bruce," a 13-meter-long (42-foot) mosasaur skeleton, which is one of the largest publicly displayed mosasaur fossils in the world. In addition to "Bruce," visitors can marvel at other fascinating specimens, such as ancient fish, turtles, and invertebrates, all of which provide insights into the diverse and vibrant ecosystems that existed millions of years ago.

The Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre offers engaging exhibits, interactive displays, and educational programs that cater to visitors of all ages. Through guided tours, fossil preparation demonstrations, and hands-on activities, visitors can learn about the process of fossilization, the methods used by paleontologists to excavate and study fossils, and the scientific discoveries that have been made in the region. The museum also conducts ongoing research projects and collaborates with scientific institutions to further our understanding of prehistoric life and the Earth's geological history.

Please note that the Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre operates year-round, with varying hours depending on the day of the week and season. Visitors are encouraged to check the museum's website or contact the museum directly for current operating hours, admission fees, and any special exhibitions or events.
