A must see for any traveller to thye Calgary area. The museum is well laid out with the introduction then walking you through the time periods before opening into the big dinosaur room. One of the best laid out museums I have ever been to. It's like IKEA, just follow the path and you will see everything. You can spend... More

I liked the fact that it's very educational and amazing information about dinosaur and fossils.... The only thing is they should not make it too dark a little light would be much better.....

Kept me absolutely enthralled for 3 hours. Awesome content and stylish displays, with a compelling timeline narrative journey that takes you through the various exhibits. Great for young and old alike.

The museum has created a journey though the different time periods providing details on the fossils you see. There are some good examples of fossils here several with interesting stories putting them in context. There is enough variety for children and adults.

The Royal Tyrrell Museum is a Canadian tourist attraction and a centre of palaeontological research. Great place to "introduce" kids to the history.There are so many fantastic things to see at the Royal Tyrrell Museum! Must be seen, when visiting Alberta.

This is a great museum. The layout is such that you can progress though time and essentially see how dinosaurs evolved into modern creatures. It can be crowded on weekends, but that's okay. There plenty of room for everyone. Kids walk around in wonderment. But adults are just as awe-struck because of the great effort to recreate dinosaurs. Most or... More

You would think that this museum would be dead center in a big city. This place is incredible, and should only be visited by people who breathe. Hope to visit again when my kids are older to be able to read the exhibits more. My 3 year old enjoyed as well!

I consider Royal Tyrrell Museum a must when staying in Alberta. It is worth the 3.45h drive from Edmonton (one way). Besides the well maintained museum itself I recommend taking some trails in the Badlands. Some hoodoos are pretty impressive.
