Our family (4 kids ages 5-11) loved this museum. So well done and we had all of our questions about the area answered. Who knew that amber was fossilized tree resin? We took about 3 hours to go through and none of the kids complained about anything. Highly recommend.

First of all I have to say that the Museum really is worth seeing! We loved the Dinosaurs and the vally! But unfortenatly the poor service from the ticket desk and in the shop made us not so happy about our stay after all.. I understand that they might be a bit tired of tourists in August and especially in... More

This place is amazing! You will need to spend an entire day (or even more) to see everything. The museum offers huge amounts of information on prehistoric life. The exhibits are all logically arranged chronologically. They have tons of dinosaurs fossils especially T-Rex fossils. There is also a viewing window so you can see one of the paleontology labs where... More

Don't wait to visit--this is a treasure, not just for Alberta and Canada, but also the world. Go early in the morning to beat the crowd. You'll have a little more elbow room around the exhibits. Spend a little extra and do one of the educational activities. We did the 7 wonders of the badlands hike--the views of the museum... More

This place is incredible. There is so much to see and experience. You'd need a couple days if you were to take the time and read everything that is offered at all the exhibits. It is so well laid out and you can get so close to everything. It makes for some awesome pictures. All the staff we encountered were... More

Plan to spend several hours here. There is so much to see, and they offer all kinds of programs, as well. It can get a bit pricey if you participate in the programs, but well worth it, especially for kids

The museum is very informative and is unparalleled by any other museum in palaeontology. The museum is a walk through the ages. It is very informative in particular for kids. One thing that looks in surplus is the amount of T.Rex remains. It is a must see for anyone visiting the Calgary area.

The Royal Tyrell museum is easily the best palaeontology museum I have been to. Everything is laid out in a great way and there is information all over the museum to go with the great fossils. The highlight has to be the 'black beauty' T. Rex fossil

Fun for all ages. I wouldn't call myself a dinosaur enthusiast but I learned so much in 2 hours. the spore/pollen room is kind of tucked away and if it wasn't for our 2 year old running in we would have missed it. We ended up spending 30minutes in here pelting rubber balls at each other!! The museum was much... More

This is an impressive museum - no doubt about it. My son is 5 years old and loves dinosaurs. He was interested the entire time. We hope to go back in a few years and take part in some of the hikes and field experiences.
