Have been a few times. Is one of the best family outings that you can experience with younger children. And the adults enjoyed it also!

This museum is a must for anyone of any age interested in dinosaurs. With the unique displays and exhibits, you can see things here that you might not see in any other area. We went in the fall so it was not very busy but you should be able to get through the whole museum in a morning or afternoon.... More

We enjoyed it, especially our little boys. But some of the information could be updated a bit, since new discoveries extinct some of the education offered.

My wife and I took our 3 year old daughter to the Tyrell Museum right before Christmas 2014. The museum was very quiet, so it provided a good opportunity for my daughter to explore all of the exhibits. There is a large area at the beginning of the museum that is currently under construction, so you have shave an hour... More

Very interesting World class museum! Not many people because we went in the winter however some of the outdoor exhibits were closed. Animals related to dinosaurs were very interesting and the turtle was very cute.

We have gone to this Museum in the past and will certainly visit again. The exhibits are amazing and the interaction with the dinosaurs is very informative and memorable. The gift shop upon exiting is a nice touch.

I LOVED this museum! First museum I have been to with a dinosaur theme. So much history and all put together in an easy, digestible manner. Great for kids and adults. Took us 3hrs to get round, but we weren't in a rush. Didn't opt for an audio guide as we felt they had plenty of info available to read.... More

This is a truly amazing exhibit of dinosaur bones, probably the largest and best in the world. We arrived mid-week in early September and museum was not very busy so we had a great opportunity to take our time and see everything. The attention to detail and the quality of the exhibits really shows. Plan to spend several hours to... More
