Friends of Royal Alberta Museum is committed to encouraging children to discover and get as excited as we are about the many treasures here at the museum. Obviously, it would be great if students could touch and handle all the museum objects, but sometimes that’s not practical when it comes to examining fragile items that can be literally millions of years old. But now – thanks to the support of our members – FRAMS has been able to purchase this wonderful, life-size cast of an Allosaurus skull that will enable school children to get right up close – so they can examine, touch, explore and learn at the Royal Alberta Museum. The cast was purchased for the museum in 2012 and unveiled in January 2013.
