This has been my forth or fifth time coming and it never disappoints! What a wonderfully laid out museum for going through time. The pieces they showcase are fantastic! Makes you feel like you are in the era. Lots of hands on and knowledgable reading. Clean, perfect lighting and displays. If driving through or camping or whatever your reason for... More

Awesome exhibits of dinosaur bones and the science of paleontology. We enjoyed learning of how the different dinosaur bones were discovered! There's a cafeteria on the premises where you can grab a bite.

Great place for our kids to teach us about the prehistoric earth. There is a lot to see here. Bring a lunch if you can the food is not great.

If you are interested in seeing the best collection of dinosaurs ever, then you must visit this museum. The dinosaurs are amazing and the information is very interested. To think that they are still finding bones to this day. It is a must see if you are in the Calgary area.

This is an awesome museum. The dinosaur displays are amazing and the information is very interesting. Its fascinating to know they are still discovering bones today. This is well worth the trip if you are in Calgary.

Quite an extraordinary museum. It's very informative and has a great presentation of exhibits. Lots of dinosaur bones! There's also a nice little trail beside the museum. We didn't find the staff to be very friendly. When we asked for directions, they were very vague and seemed too busy to help. Overall though, very cool museum!

We visited the museum on Easter Monday with our 2 year old daughter. I appreciated the volume of exhibits - the fossils are amazing and the information presented throughout the museum was wonderful. They had some activities for smaller kids which my daughter really enjoyed. We didn't venture outside - I believe the walking activities were out of season but... More

Brilliant! I find that as my kids get older it has become increasingly hard to find things that they enjoy. This place fits things they enjoy. The beauty of this experience was they actually learned something too!
