The most relevant dinosaur museum on the industry

I'm completely impressed with the quality of the displays, The professional feel presented in a fun way for anyone to enjoy and learn is magical. Worth the drive for all ages and education levels.

This us a really good museum. If you have little interest in dinosaurs or geology then don't go. The museum is the best thing in Drumheller, unless you want to help stimulate the towns economy because it loss like it needs it.

For a restaurant in a museum like this, it would be easy to nail you on both price and quality. The prices are reasonable and the food was good. They have a good variety including a lot of healthy salads. Don't be afraid to try it out as you enjoy an incredible museum.

One word; awesome. It's a superbly exciting place to be. Especially if you love history (and even if you don't) It's an interesting place that holds relics of dinosaurs that I didn't even know existed. Every part was enjoyable and easy to spend time just walking looking at the dinosaur relics. The museum was divided into several parts that makes... More

The first trex is so dramatic and well lit. It is stunning. The museum is a lot of fun for all ages. The staff were sufficiently nerdy and friendly and knew what they were talking about:) parts were a bit hard to navigate through but it was a great visit. Looks like they have audio tours too but we didn't... More

We were in awe of everything we saw and learned. This should be on everyone's "bucket list" The exhibits were exceptional and for all that they offer the admission prices are a bargain.

A nice place to get something quick while enjoying the museum. It has a good range of options, and feels like a large cafeteria. It is quite busy, but the lines move fast. The food will not blow you away, but is good, given its location.
