We loved our visit to the Royal Tyrrell, price for admittance is very good, Exibits are awesome ! my only complaint is no French description at all !! it's desapointing for a bilingual country, French and English are the two official language in Canada. Every other museum are using both french and English.

This museum is awesome, it has what every museum must have: a great place, interesting exhibits, all the facilities are in very good shape, there is a good trail to take a walk, you can spend all day here and never get bored, there is cafeteria and a big gift shop. as a downside it is quite far from edmonton...

This is a superb museum and a must visit if you are in or around Calgary. The exhibits are breathtaking and superbly presented. There are various outdoor activities too, but we didn't have time to experience these.

We are so glad we included this stop on our trip! I thought the museum was going to be small and somwhat insignificant, but WOW, was I wrong. The Royal Tyrrell had an AMAZING selection of fossils and exhibits. We stayed for half the day and could have still taken in more, if we didn't have to get on the... More

I think it's worth an hour or so to go through this museum. It was very interesting. The reconstructed dinosaurs sure give you a perspective off days gone by.

This place is the premier dinosaur and fossil museum.... Really? I was underwhelmed as so many of the exhibits aren't real fossils they are just constructed models. While excellently presented there was just no wow factor. The five year old loved it which was great to see and there was certainly lots to see. If you have any interest in... More

Completely AWESOME place to go, whether you are a couple or a family. This museum is so full of history and the exhibits are truly amazing, consisting of hands on as well. You could spend a whole day there and still not see all there is to see. When you are done in the museum-you can climb to the lookout... More

This is the reason most people visit Drumheller and rightly so. You may think you have seen dinosaur museums before but they won't have been on anything like this scale. Everything is well presented and explained. After the museum, it is worth doing the short walking trail from the Museum (avoid the crowded viewpoint) and then do the North Dinosaur... More

A world class museum! Tons to see and learn. Located in the interesting town of Drumheller, a sight to see all on its own. Be sure to make a day of it.
