It’s a one of a kind auction and it’s found only at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum at the corner of Albert Street and College Avenue. The Friends of the Royal Saskatchewan Museum decided it was time to auction off items to make room for a new exhibit set to be viewed in 2019.
“It encompasses a gathering space, so for the public, for school groups, for events, those kinds of things, but in the middle of that there’s going to be a giant Tyrannosaurus Rex,” explained Michelle Hunter of the Friends of the Royal Saskatchewan Museum.
This particular T-Rex is the largest in the world and was discovered in the southwest corner of the province about 20 years ago. Starting next month the museum will be redesigning parts of their upper and lower floors to showcase the massive dinosaur cast of the mighty Scotty T-Rex. This means they have to get rid of several items to make room for the new exhibit.

“We have a series of photographs from the map room and there’s some beautiful, amazing photographs there,” noted Hunter. “Some of them are by local folks (and) some of them are by rather famous artists such as Courtney Milne.”
Other items up for bids include pieces from the Human Factor and Zoom exhibits as well as various sculptures and balance displays. McDougall Auctions is selling all the items on behalf of the museum and interested bidders have until October 31st to make an offer online.
