Amazing collection of prehistoric skeletons presented in entertaining dioramas. Concise and understandable information on excavation and preservation without becoming boring. Nice skeleton displays without becoming garish or over sensational. Fun for both kids and adults. A must see if you're in the area or an avid dinophile.

This was my fourth visit to the museum and it never fails to disappoint. I love, love, love the fact that they offered our whole family free admission because my husband is in the military. Its the only place in Canada we've been to that offers this perk and it truly means a lot. The entire museum and the outside... More

Pretty crowded today compared to my other visits but that did not change the enjoyment. This museum is laid out very well and seems to constantly being improved. Don't miss the small walk around to see the badlands view points.

Fascinating displays wich are very well laid out, spacious, and very interesting, even for kids! All for a very reasonable price! This sums it all up in a nutshell, and I can't think of anything more to add! If you're interested, it's not to be missed!

Wow... I am from California and have been to the La Brea Tar Pits, this is MUCH better! I couldn't get over how many dinosaur fossils they have! It was great to read the stories behind the finding of them. It was a little hot in there that day and I didn't stay as long as I might have if... More

We got a 2 day pass however we were able to see the museum in the first day. We have a 10 year old son. I did the Fossil Casting with our son, it was a great activity and a lot of fun, and we both have a fossil cast as a memory of our trip. Also on the 2nd... More

The whole beginning of our road trip, all my son talked about was being so excited to see real T Rex bones. He was so excited when he finally saw it. I think he was a little overwhelmed when he was standing there staring at the T Rex. It made his whole trip. He can't wait until we can go... More

Very helpful and friendly staff, amazing displays, great restaurant, but you can bring your own lunch if you prefer, terrific programs, family bathrooms... it's a pretty big list! Would definitely recommend going early to avoid really long line ups. We did and it made a huge difference between a happy boy, and a cranky boy who waited way too long... More

A cool and great experience. A lot of dinosaur infos and exhibits, a cool find, and interesting knowledge to fill out mind with imaginations on how it was back in the days of the dinos. I could visit this place again. We probably spent more than an hour at this place. It is big and a good idea to have... More
