It is situated approximately 55km north from the Montana border and 85km from the Alberta border.The town is best known for the nearby discovery of a Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton nicknamed "Scotty" in 1994.

The centre is operated by the Royal Saskatchewan Museum, and contains the RSM Fossil Research Station.
