Lots of events going on / talks, etc... Also a walk around outside for about 1km through the bad lands. The exhibits are fantastic, many interactive, which helps to keep the kids engaged. Overall, lots to do, would definitely recommend it. Good day out, about two hour drive from Calgary. The cafeteria is clean, well kept. We stuck to the... More

It was an interesting visit. I remembered it being a lot more interactive as a kid, but we did the dinosite program and learned how to find bones and petrified wood, the kids found it interesting but I'd recommend them being a little bit older to get the most out of it( 8+)

This is one of the best museums that I have visited. My kids loved it. We had so much fun and also kids learned a lot. They have done a great job organizing different galleries and their collection is amazing.

If you are a dino fan or have kids who are, this is by far one of the best museum experience. The exhibits are very well planned and give the visitor a great sense of learning through time. They have some of the rarest on display as well as a couple of the newest. The exhibits are all at the... More
