CALGARY – Comedic icon John Cleese has been spotted enjoying a popular tourist spot in southern Alberta.

Just weeks after taking in the sights at the Calgary Zoo, Cleese visited the Royal Tyrell Museum in Drumheller.

Officials say he visited on Friday, and got a tour from Curator of Dinosaurs, Dr. Donald Henderson.

Staff say Cleese seemed really inquisitive, and spent the whole tour asking questions about paleontology and why Alberta has so many fossils.

He’s not the first celebrity to visit the site; actor Matthew McConaughey took a trip to the Royal Tyrell Museum in August.

The museum, located about 135 kilometres from Calgary, is home to hundreds of dinosaur bones and fossils.

The 76-year-old will perform at the Jack Singer Concert Hall on October 19th and 20th.
