This is a very small museum but it does a great job of highlighted local discoveries! I took my grade one/two class and a craft was done after a tour and scavenger hunt.

We drove up to this museum, on the recommendation of family. It is small, but does a good job of displaying and explaining the finds made locally. It was also a beautiful drive to get there,

This museum showcases the findings in the area very well, as well as providing some fun insight into other findings in western Canada. I would definitely recommend it!

Had the pleasure of visiting the museum with a few people that initially discovered the dinosaur tracks on flatbed creek. The museum is easily accessible and very well laid out. Displays are informative. Check out the videos on Daniel Helm on your visit.
