We took the kids to see the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller. We had talked about taking the drive out for years. It did not disappoint ! Everyone enjoyed the museum which is well planned out and very interesting. There were interactive displays and a viewing window into the lab where the "work" is done. $33.00 for the family admission... More

Living in Alberta, it's a must-see at least every year. I make the drive from Edmonton and, despite the hours on the road, it's a fascinating experience to see so much detail in this museum. I first went way back in 1987, the year it was first open... they update frequently enough and provide programs for schools as well. Yes,... More

This is one of the coolest places in Alberta to sea. The museum is at the bottom of an inland ocean - yes it's been drained for over 50 million years but it's still cool. The museum itself is incredible. There is no finer paleontology museum in Canada and it's one of the best in the world. The displays are... More

We have lived in 4 countries and visited many more and this is by far the best dinosaur museum in the world. The amount of dinosaurs is truly impressive and the interactive stands on teeth strength and insects stuck in amber where very immersive. I have been twice and will undoubtably go again.

The displays are well presented and preserved. they have a great variety of fossils and dinosaurs and mammals. there is lots of interactive and educational stuff for children. you can touch a lot of the exhibits which is unusual in the majority of the museums. you can walk outside in the hoodoos.

I visit every 2 years or so - and each time I am amazed that we have this treasure in Alberta. Not only is the science and history very impressive but the artful way they present the exhibits is simply stunning. This is a world class facility that continues to grow, improve and lead the way in every sense. Plan... More
