Originally the Drumheller Dinosaur and Fossil Museum, opened in the early 1960s, the Centre has recently undergone numrous changes to refresh its appearance and emphasis.
Displays in the centre include Horned Dinosaurs,The Petrified Forests, Dinosaur Hunters, and the Juniper Carvings of W.G. Hodgson. An ice-age bison skeleton sports a rounded stone in its skull, possibly the earliest evidence of humans in Alberta.
The centre houses L.A. Duncan collection, which features numerous natural science and art objects selected throughout Duncan's life span.
