Three Rivers Rock and Fossil Museum

For the past eight years Charlotte and Larry Dwyer have been sharing their love of rocks and fossils with visitors from around the world. Their passion which started as a hobby has now turned into an internationally respected collection of over 3,500 specimens. 

Although located in rural Alberta, this collection and the Dwyers knowledge is world class. They have worked for years collecting specimens from around the world, preparing them and finally assembling museum quality displays with each item categorized, labeled and housed in professional made display cabinets.

In addition to rocks there are also fossils, a dinosaur egg, gems, crystals, granite, and the largest collection of cephalopods in Canada. There are even stromotalites which is a form of algae and the oldest form of life in the world. The pieces were found just southwest of Pincher Creek.

If you are interested in rocks or fossils make sure you take the time to visit this facility and meet Charlotte and Larry. This place is amazing.
