We looked forward to seeing this great museum. We were not disappointed! Everything you wanted to know about evolution dinosaurs in Canada was presented. However, at times it was almost TMI. Took about 2.5 hours to do the circuit.

Always a pleasure visiting this location. Last time was with our kids 20 years ago, this time with our grandchildren. It always impresses and seems to have expanded a fair bit. Of course the price has increased as well but still a worthwhile spot to visit. Get there early to beat the crowds.

Spent an entire day visiting this fabulous museum. Took part in the Seven Wonders of the Badlands Tour and our daughter took part in the Junior Diggers program. Both were wonderful and worth the extra reasonable fees. Having kid's programs (7-12 years old) is a terrific idea as it allows parents time to go back to the museum to spend... More

We brought family from Europe to the Royal Tyrell Museum and it exceeded all their expectations. While we have been fortunate enough to explore this large and outstanding museum featuring dinosaurs & our global history, it was a joy to bring others to the museum and witness their impressions and listen to their praise of the exhibits, curatorial work, atmosphere...

Get there early to avoid the crowds. At 9:00 am we walked right in but by the time we left, around 11:30, there were probably 200 people in the lineup. Lots of cool dinosaurs and other things to see.

No one should miss an opportunity to experience the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller, AB. It is so well organized and there is so much information there. It is very family friendly. We took our 3 grandchildren - ages 10, 8 and 5 - and they were totally interested in all the displays and things to see and do.

A really cool dinosaur museum. First time back since visiting from I was a little child. Really sad they didn't have the giant pile of dino dung or any of the kid stuff from long ago.. or maybe we somehow missed it :(

When you hear "dinosaur museum" you think of a place for little children. Well, the Royal Tyrell is for little ones, middle ones, and older ones. It sits in the middle of fossil country some two hours outside of Calgary. The presentations, the building, the thought that went into this amazing place is simply wonderful.
