We visited this fantastic museum on a somewhat mixed-weather day in August 2016. The museum was particularly busy as it was a long weekend in the summer with a less than fantastic forecast. Despite a tremendously busy parking lot and a lengthy lineup for tickets, we noted right away that all staff members were courteous and polite. Their professional and... More

Our first day trip of the holiday and we head for Drumheller. Very interesting museum although a little on the dark side, the exhibits were very good and we spent a couple of hours wandering around inside. Once outside there are a number of different hikes you can do with some great photo opportunities.

The museum was more than I remembered from when I was a child. It's vast array of exhibits brought me back to my childhood! The museum flowed in a way that you get to see everything and there are interactive exhibits that you can spend extra time getting to learn more about that time period and the species of animals...

They had a huge variety of species of dinosaurs and displayed many different time periods. I would recommend going during the week or a little off season, it was quite busy and crowded while we were there. Not a negative can't do much about that. There was lots of fossils dug up from the surrounding area and lots of tours... More

We got here early before opening and was able to take some great photos outside first. The museum itself is well laid out and has accommodated small children well. If you like Dinosaurs you will love this museum. A must do if in Drumheller.

This museum has an extensive array of original and cast artifacts. It is well laid out, and dramatic. There are many interactive displays and videos (we didn't watch the videos but maybe next time). There's so much to see, we could've spent a lot more time here had we planned better, and hopefully we'll be back someday to do that.

This museum came highly recommended by friends and trip advisor reviews. We added a day and an extra hotel stay, plus several hours of driving to our vacation to see this museum. I was worried it would be a waste of time and money to do so. I couldn't imagine how a dinosaur museum would be that cool...even though I... More

I think the kid version of myself thought that by 2016 the dinosaurs would be walking in the museum halls but they weren't :( The fossils are still amazing but I think some robo moving Dino's would be good!

I took my 10 and 7 year old children. Both were engaged, but on different levels which were accommodated equally. Very interesting and beautiful natural surroundings, so plan to spend extra time walking around outside.
