Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology,, Alberta
This museum features ten signature galleries devoted to paleontology, with 40 dinosaur skeletons and more than 130,000 fossil specimens.
One of the galleries shows creatures from the Burgess Shale (Cambrian) at 12 times their natural size. Anomalocaris and Opabinia are from this gallery and look like something from a Hieronymous Bosch painting illustrating the torturing of the damned as they are dragged down to Hell.
