Not much to say, one of the best museums in an absolutely beautiful area, easily a full day's activities even in the off season. Great staff, amazing exhibits, come here every year and always have a fantastic time.

I loved this museum visit very much. The kids greatly enjoyed all the things to see. Only thing I didn't like was the lack of bathrooms, and the lack of quick escapes to run back to the parking lot because something was left in the truck. Be ready to spend 3 plus hours and enjoy everything there is to learn.

Not sure if I enjoyed the museum more or the drive to the museum more (the rolling hills).. both are pretty good.. Be prepared to spend a whole day, if you drive from Calgary. There are so much to see..

If you like dinosaurs and like to learn about everything and anything this is the place for you. They teach you everything on the start of the world from what we know to how they think humans came about. There is so much to read and learn here that I recommend at least 4-5 hours for this place. I absolutely... More

This little part of Alberta is very impressive. I think for anyone coming to the province - or for those who live here - this is a perfect day trip. Drive there on highway 9 and be sure to stop 17 K before Drumheller at Horseshoe Canyon (also on Tripadvisor) Watch for the signs or you might is it. It... More

Let me start this out by saying, I do not get into dinosaurs. My husband loves this stuff and I figured that since we were going to be fairly close to this museum, on our way to Medicine Hat, that we should stop by and check it out. We arrived not long after they opened and spent several hours wandering... More

We were on holidays in September 2015 and decided to visit Drumheller. Very nice museum. Many exhibits and lots of interesting information. Was a great way to spend the day. The surrounding badlads were awesome to see as well. Did not know that we had land like that in Canada was an added bonus.

I love natural history, so this was an amazing museum. My son was really into dinosaurs so this was perfect. It takes a long time to go through this museum, don't rush it and take your time.
