There is a great collection of gems and fossils. Not all of it local but a lot of it is. Some of the stuff is a bit expensive, but it is as close as you can get to taking home something from the dinosaur museum.

We did not spend as much time as we would have liked to in this shop...a treasure-trove of fossils and rocks. I bought a pair of shark-teeth earrings (irresistible), while the others bought other jewelry and stones. Be sure to go downtown to see another huge inventory.

Discovered the store today during a snowstorm. The british lady was very nice and found a great trilobite, they have a good selection for a small shop. Amazing turtle shell and cave bear skeleton.

I had friends visit from Nova Scotia for a view days in Drumheller, and we went to the Fossil Shop. It always amazes me how good this shop is for authenticity, variety, and friendly service. My friends found what they wanted to take home, and the store owner gave them some stands for the fossils for free. A great store... More

For those of us who study archaeology and palaeontology this is a great stop to check up in finds. Skulls, ammorites, toys and jewellery. Whether you want to buy a $2.00 rock or an $8,000 piece if a dinosaur, you have your pick from a collection brought in both locally and globally. Very neat place.

My girlfriend, daughter and I went in to see what we could add to our collection, and were amazed at not only the amazing selection, but how incredibly nice the lady who owns the store is. We have never been treated as nicely and felt as welcome in any other business anywhere we have been. Highly recommended!

If you love fossil hunting, this store is a must, (over anything else with the word Fossil in it). The store has huge collection of authentic fossils as well as novelty items, home decor and jewellery, but that is only part of what makes you want to spend hours in the store. It's like an extension of the Royal Tyrell,... More
