Ma Kettle forced me to go. I admit it. I had no interest whatsoever in driving from Calgary to Drumheller in the heat of summer to see a bunch of old bones. Well, let me tell you, the visit was great, as was the drive itself. The displays are tremendous. Very tastefully done, very lifelike. The settings for each display... More

this was a day well spent with the grandkids. We had just as much fun as them. Make sure you eat at Yavis family restaurant in town while you are there.

Our son has been living in Calgary for over ten years now. Every time we've driven by the sign to Drumheller, enroute from Regina, my wife and I have commented we really should go there. So many of our friends and family have told us that the museum is amazing and it's really worth our time to drive there. When... More

The dinosaur museum does only one thing and does it very well. Specialization has its rewards as its one and only subject keeps you in the loop for a solid visitor's day. And you don't have to be a big reptile geek to enjoy the show. The displays include both real fossils and artificial recreations. The lighting, spacing and reading... More

It's not just a natural history museum, its in the middle of a natural history laboratory - the Canadian Badlands in Drumheller, Alberta. T-Rex his cousins, his lunch and a good number of the dinosaurs of the Cretaceous have been found in this area. The Royal Tyrrell Museum captures the excitement by connecting visitors to the very location where incredible... More

Always bringing in new things and always full of fun. The museum is interactive and has loads of information on dinosaurs of course with an extensive collection of fossils and just really cool things to see. There is an awesome park outdoors that will keep your kids entertained for hours. Must see for an Alberta tour or day trip from... More

I liked it all but the line up was pretty long to get in. We arrived at 1:30pm so maybe you need to get there earlier.
