This is a short detour off the #1 highway and worth the visit. It's a small museum, but there are good displays and guided tours every 30 minutes. There is no fee to enter but donations are accepted. As others have mentioned, it is smaller and doesn't have the numbers of dinosaurs like museums like the Royal Tyrell Museum. So... More

First of all the signs to find the museum were very clear and direct which is something I cannot say for many of the attractions in Saskatchewan. A very well laid out museum with many interesting exhibits. The staff are very friendly and knowledgable. I like the fact that you can wander on your own, take a guided tour or... More

A friend and I were driving through to Calgary from Ontario and decided we needed a change of scenery from the hwy so we ventured to the Red Coat Trail. On this trail one thing we were most excited about was the Ghost Towns and T. Rex discovery centre. To our disappointment we pulled up to the discovery centre only... More

The T Rex centre is not open in the winter time but is a must visit in the summer time. Scotty the T rex is very impressive.

A chance to view the t.rex is well worth the visit, but the other fossils and displays, as well as the programs for kids make it a special stopping point. It is situated on a hill overlooking the Town of Eastend and is very picturesque.

Spent an hour at the museum, could have easily spend three, many activities to do, which we didn't take part of, good videos and a lot of dinosaur displays to keep the kids interesred. A fantastic drive and Eastend is a beautiful town in the Frenchman river valley. Worth the drive.

the t-Rex center is a must see when in s.w. sask. it is built into the hill with a large glass front making it a remarkable building. the skeleton of "Scotty" is now complete and something to see. the tour guides will explain the whole story and you can listen to more in the theatre,

The new 40+ foot skeleton of Scotty the T Rex is now up in it's full splendor in the main gallery. It is something you can not miss, takes your breath away as you stand under it. Since the Royal Saskatchewan Museum has taken over operation of the centre there are many new and revolving exhibits. So if you have... More

If you are in the Cypress Hills area this is a must see! The museum is small but well done. The Imagination is alive with what else is still out there in the surrounding hills.
