I loved the museum, the exhibits were large and colourful, the variety of fossils was amazing, and there is definitely something for everyone. I LOVED the Cretaceous Garden and the 'undersea' exhibits. Well Done!

The Royal Tyrell Museum is a great attraction to visit if you are in the Calgary area for a few days or more. Located about an hour and a half outside of Calgary, this dinosaur museum in the badlands of Drumheller is worth the time and effort to visit. We went with our 4 year old daughter who likes dinosaurs... More

Drumheller is totally different from anything you will see in Alberta. And the museum is always a very cool place to spend some time. There is a lot to see and learn, price of admission is fair as is price for food. Check out the badlands pathway in the park, walk the trails. so very cool!

I have been here many times and love the whole atmosphere. The museum is great for everyone! The advertising does not do this place justice. It is awesome!

The display was fantastic! Unfortunately there are parents that let their children run and scream as if in an outdoor playground. Quite a few of us were not impressed. It was suggested that one arrive at opening (by-pass line-ups this way), and start at the back of the building. By the time the children meet up with you, you should... More

The set up was fantastic. It appealed to everyone in our group which ranged from 5 to 80. The information, presentation and knowledge was superb. A truly wonderful experience. Even the gift shop had some great deals and interesting things to buy as gifts. Very well done.

The Tyrrell Museum is impressively well organized. Lighting and sound combined with the amazing fossils make this museum one of the best I've ever seen. The kids loved it. When I asked them which part they preferred, hey replied: "everything!" Besides the amazing inside experience, you get to walk the trail and get to know more about Alberta's Badlands, present...

I had heard from many people that this museum is a must see. They were absolutely correct. My husband and I went first thing in the morning and spent 5 hours reviewing the displays. All of it was breath taking. So much information to absorb....we had to take a break for lunch. The burgers were top notch. There are also... More
