I'm not usually drawn to museums but this one was fantastic! Very interesting displays and well organized. Not super expensive for what you get. Huge place....you could spend all day there. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great so we didn't get to take advantage of the outdoor tour!

We made the stop in Drumheller with a singular focus - Tyrrell. The museum was terrific - so many displays, artifacts, fossils and exhibits. Easy to walk thru and learn. Lots for kids of any age. We booked (in advance) Fossil Casting and 7 Wonders of the Badlands - both were excellent. Great way to see/hold fossils and of course... More

The museum is first class. My grandkids love to go there over and over again. They never get tired of looking at all the dinosaur bones and exhibits. Fun family trip less then 1.5 hours from Calgary. Additional activities outside the museum as well.

Have been several times and am always astonished at this world class museum in the middle of the badlands...the exhibits are beautiful, detailed and the museum is very clean. Decent restaurant on site with a lovely patio for nicer weather. The surrounding area is amazing to drive and HooDoos not to be missed!

If you are in to dinosaurs it's a 5, if you're not into fossils, bones and can't name more than 2 dinosaurs then it's still a 4. Some good activities for the kids and very well organized with helpful staff. Seeing as though we went less than 24 hours after the final Tragically Hip concert... I had the song "Little... More

This is a fascinating place to visit. It is humbling to see the various displays - especially the premier dinosaur. I Recommend that you drive the Dinosaur Trail take in the scenery - you would expect to have a dinosaur come down the hills. Lots of photogenic sites.
