Easter Egg Hunt at Remington Carriage Museum

The annual Remington Carriage Museum Easter Egg Hunt is coming up fast this Friday, March 19 beginning at 11 a.m. This long-running, free event has made generations of kids happy as they hopped about the museum looking for chocolate eggs to fill their baskets. To accommodate the large crowds, children are divided into three age groups: ages 0 to four; five to eight and nine to 12. Each group will search in their own special area of the museum for their chocolate treats!

If you plan on attending this fun, festive event, make sure you are there on time to have the best chance to get an egg. In addition to the hunt, children’s shows will be playing in the theater during the event. Bring a camera, as the Easter Bunny has been known to make an appearance!

Times for each age group egg hunt are as follows:

Ages 0-4: 11 a.m.
Ages 5-8: 11:20 a.m.
Ages 9-12: 11:40 a.m.

Located in the rolling foothills of southern Alberta, the Remington Carriage Museum in Cardston is operated by Alberta Culture and Tourism and provides visitors with an authentic experience of 19th and early 20th century horse-drawn transportation. Using state-of-the-art techniques, the Remington Carriage Museum brings this bygone era to life.

There’s no shortage of fun at the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology during the long weekend from Friday, March 25 to Sunday, March 27.

Special Easter programming will be available all weekend! Storytime is perfect for the little ones. Fossil Casting allows visitors to make a piece of pre-history to take home. Free auditorium shows also run throughout the weekend.

Don’t miss out on the Dinosaur Egg Hunt that takes place throughout the weekend from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the galleries! Pick up an activity sheet from a Science Educator in the main lobby or an Admissions staff member at the Visitor Services Desk and start hunting to spot the dinosaur eggs hidden throughout the galleries!. Return your completed sheet to a staff member in the main lobby to claim your prize. A small fee will apply to the Fossil Casting program.

Operated by Alberta Culture and Tourism, the Royal Tyrrell Museum is located in Drumheller and is Canada’s only museum dedicated exclusively to the science of palaeontology. In addition to housing one of the world’s largest displays of dinosaurs, the Museum offers a wide variety of creative, fun, and educational programs that bring the prehistoric past to life.
