Friday October 28: Open from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm (Closing early to get ready for Artifact / Artifiction fundraiser.)
The Friends of the Royal Saskatchewan Museum are hosting the sixth Artifact/Artifiction, an evening of deduction, deception and discovery. Artifact/Artifiction matches wits between party-goers and museum scientists and staff. Get into the game with 20 peculiar artifacts from the Royal Saskatchewan Museum collections – and 20 even stranger tales about the items origins – are displayed throughout the gallery spaces. Plus, more games and entertainment including a silent auction, raffles, music, food AND Grand Prize. Winner of the game takes home:
The turtle is about 66 million years old and was found near Grasslands National Park in 2016, next to bones of a Triceratops. The species has a special name Leiochelys tokaryki, or "Tokaryk's smooth turtle" in recognition of long-time RSM palaeontologist Tim Tokaryk's work in the Cretaceous of Saskatchewan.
