I hadn't been to this museum since I was a kid, and now that I have kids decided to finally take them. It was even better than I remembered! Our main reason for going was the Nodosaur which my young kids were obsessed about seeing,...More

This was our second visit; had a shorter visit 2 years ago. This is a serious museum and people should allow 2-3 hours at least to see it; we were there in the morning and returned in the evening (ticket is good all day). There...More

This is great for everyone. Even though the attractions also had young children in mind when designed, I believe a child would need to be a bit older (10 & up) to enjoy and remember the trip.

impressive fossils are very well preserved and presented in the museum. There are also some tours for family to gain a better insight into the fossil discovery and generations.

The museum is the number one thing to do in Drumheller for a reason. For us, a one day pass was more than enough, and we read almost everything, and watched a couple of the movies. I could not see someone spending two days there....More

Fantastic exhibits, running through the entire geological history of Alberta, not just dinosaurs. The original specimens are amazing and displayed with care. You can see people actually working on the fossils, quite the sight. Very crowded, even in the early morning, but worth it.

Interesting museum - clearly the staff have put a lot of effort into reconstructing the fossil displays. The favorite parts for our kids were watching some of the behind-the scenes work, the room with the glass floor, and of course the gift shop. We enjoyed...More

Hi Shannon. Personally, I would get a hotel for the night as there's definitely enough to fill an entire day plus the next half day or so with activities for your family. The boys will probably love the go-karts and... More
