Double Dino Birthdays!

Released on August 14, 2018


The Royal Saskatchewan Museum (RSM) is celebrating Double Dino Birthdays this August as Regina’s beloved T.rex, Megamunch, will be sharing birthday celebrations with Scotty at the T.rex Discovery Centre in Eastend.

The Friends of the Royal Saskatchewan Museum invites everyone to join in the celebrations.  Megamunch will be turning 65,000,032 years old, while his big little sister is turning 65,000,027.  That puts them both in the Cretaceous Period, a time when dinosaurs roamed freely over southern Saskatchewan.

“Thanks to the Friends, Megamunch’s birthday party has become an eagerly anticipated summer event in Regina, while in Eastend, the T.rex Discovery Centre will be celebrating Scotty’s discovery 27 years ago and her unveiling in the museum gallery in 2013,” Minister of Parks, Culture and Sport Gene Makowsky said.  “This double birthday brings T.rex fans and museum lovers together to celebrate these magnificent creatures and our official provincial fossil.”


The T.rex Discovery Centre will host a birthday bash for Scotty on Thursday, August 16, from 1-6 p.m. in Eastend, where activities will include a fossil hunt in the new fossil dig pit, face painting, dinosaur crafts, a photo booth, plus birthday cake and treat bags for the kids.

The celebrations continue on Saturday, August 18, from 12-4 p.m. in Regina when the Friends of the RSM will hold Megamunch's party.  The day will feature dino-bouncers, dig pits, a photo booth, plus games, crafts, and bubbles.

The purchase of a Play-all-day wristband will provide unlimited fun at all the activity stations.  There will be hot dogs and snacks available for purchase through Scotty's Hot Diggity Dogs.

In lieu of presents, Megamunch asks that you bring dog food to donate to CC RezQs, a Regina dog rescue.
