Warner is the home of impressive Devil’s Coulee Dinosaur Heritage Museum, which showcases the 1987 paleontological find (initiated by a young local girl before being completed by a crew from the Royal Tyrrell Museum) of an extensive, nearly complete nesting site of Hadrosaur (duckbill) dinosaurs. The Museum features a Hadrosaur nest and embryo, ancient fossils, dinosaur models and a mural depicting dinosaurs caring for their young. See the dinosaur egg site first hand on a two-hour tour into Devil’s Coulee. Learn how to identify fossils in their original setting and discover the geological forces that shaped the coulees.
In the Heritage Gallery visitors can explore the more recent past through artifacts and stories from the early days of the Warner region. Move through the time of the settlers and both World Wars and learn about the First Special Service Force, an elite fighting brigade of World War II. The "Women’s Days of the Week" display depicts the importance of a woman’s role in creating and maintaining a new community in the early 1900s.
