Scotty Has Approved The Drawings, Now Onto The Build!

Released on December 3, 2018

Construction to bring Scotty, the world’s largest T.rex to the Royal Saskatchewan Museum (RSM) is underway, but that doesn’t mean the RSM is closed to the public the entire time.

“The RSM is a world-class organization and continually offers new experiences to its visitors, the addition of Scotty will prove to be one of the most exciting additions yet,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said.  “In a few years, we may forget what the RSM previously looked like, make sure to visit through the holidays to see the transformation and continue to visit when Scotty is revealed in the spring of 2019.”

Work began early in November and visitors are still enjoying the Life Sciences, First Nations and Earth Sciences Galleries.  Plus, nobody will want to miss how Megamunch plans to dress for the holidays!

There will be a brief closure of the RSM starting on December 10 in order to create the opening in the second floor to make way for Scotty.  The RSM will re-open for the Christmas break on December 26, a great time to check out the space that Scotty will soon call home.

Another brief closure will take place on January 7, with a re-opening on January 19.  Twenty-seven years ago, the internationally famous “Scotty”, believed to be the largest Tyrannosaurus Rex ever discovered, was found right here in Saskatchewan.  Renovations will also include expanded public gathering spaces in the lobby and exhibit level, as well as an area to deliver school programs.

The RSM, located at 2445 Albert Street, is open daily from 9:30 a.m. until 5 p.m.  Visit www.royalsaskmuseum.ca or call 306-787-2815.  Admission is by donation.
