It's sad to see that this little church was a little bit neglected. It has a certain smell... I know it's old and has a great history and story to tell but a little care would be much better....

Worth a look if you're driving past but not worth driving out of your way to visit as you would only spend a few minutes there.

Neat little place a couple minutes down the road from Tyrrell Museum, however needs a paint job badly. I was disappointed to see tags behind the alter for scavanger hunts, etc... clean up after yourselves and show some respect :-)

Located on the road to the Royal Tyrrell Museum, you cannot miss this cute little church. With 6 tiny pews to sit, the kids loved exploring for a few minutes. When we were there on Aug 28, stepping out of the van you could hear the gophers "singing". Very fitting.

I realize that the Little Church is not a designated tourist site...rather it is meant for mediation/contemplation. However, it is very cute and worth maintaining to a higher degree. A sign with more information about the origins or the history of the area would be worthwhile.

We were impressed with little church, but wondered the history behind it! We wondered who built it and why it was built. We wondered about some stones that were placed on the cross, along with some very long strands of human black hair. Is this part of the exhibit?

It was designed as a place of worship... More

If in Drumheller, and especially at neighbouring RTM, you must stop at this little church. It's cute, and seats six. It's free as well.

Worth taking a few minutes after RTM to stop at Little Church. Great rich history in Drumheller and this adds to tapestry.

It costs nothing to go see this little church we were on a badlands tour with Don & Val on most of the places we drove by or visited. They actually still use this little church. It is very tiny I think 6 people may fit in it but a great little piece of history. Hearing the history of this... More
