I love coming here and will go once every 2 years or so. It gets busy in the summer and there are a lot of things for kids to do. I like the things they have in the gift shop

So well done. Our friends from Ontario were blown away! Great exhibits with lots of history and explanations. Although we did not do any of the extra activities such as "digs" I can only assume they would be excellent.

First, I'll say it's nicely air conditioned. Second, it was the perfect amount of time to walk through. It was a great learning experience and there were so many things to see. I highly recommend to all. You'll definitely learn something! The gift shop was very busy. Parking was good. And it's $15 for an adult to get in. There... More

Loved every moment of our time at the museum. We only spent about 4 hours and was able to see and read the articles. We didn't participate in any of the paid activities so I can't comment on that.

This was truly a special experience. There was so much to see. I could have spent a few days there but only had one.

A wicked experience for all ages and very super interactive! Give yourself about 2-3 hrs for the inside museum to not feel rushed. Check out their closing times to know. I really enjoyed going back here as been so many yrs gone by and was a kid then and now I brought my 10 yr old today to enjoy such... More

About and hour and a half North East of Calgary, this museum is located right on a dig site for dinosaurs. This is a great spot for all ages. Hours of interesting exhibits inside. Several reconstructed dinosaurs, and hundreds of skeleton exhibits. If you are lucky enough to have nice weather, there are plenty of trails on the property to... More

this place is amazing and one not to be missed, a drive from staying in Calgary to Drumheller takes 90 minutes, and we spent a few hours here in the museum and along the paths to see the dinosaurs, scattered around and the information is something else. lets you see history at its best and what we missed all those...

Museum opens at 10 am, but if you get there early you can walk the path and check out the exterior before it gets hot. If you have small children head to the playground behind the building - its awesome! Bring a picnic and your coffee there are tables near the play area. buy your tickets on line and extra... More

We arrived around 10am and there were a good size of people already. My 5yr old enjoyed everything but my 10yr old got bored along the way. Very informative even for adults. Took us 2hrs to tour the museum (we're even in a hurry and didn't try the story telling or other programs/videos) There's a cafeteria inside and prices were... More
