Parking lot full but after finding a space,the museum was awesome. I was never dinosaur person but still very very interesting. Hard to fathom these are real bones found pretty well outside the museum.

Myself and my partner love museums, especially any involving dinosaurs but we really weren't impressed by this one! We have been to the museum in London and their dinosaurs are much more impressive! Over all it's very over crowded and very expensive for what it is.. Needs updated also!

I'm not much of a museum person, usually paying the fee to go in, look around, wonder what to do next and then leave having been to a landmark (Louvre, Met MoMa etc), but not feeling the need to stay and learn beyond the basics. Tyrell was very different. I could have read every display, stood and looked longer at... More

The Royal Tyrell Museum of Paleontology will blow your mind! I discovered that dinosaurs were on earth for about 160 million years. Compare this to our ancestors, 6 million years, and the modern form of humans who only evolved about 200,000 years ago. I hadn't really considered the numbers before. Nor had I really thought about the history of our... More

This was a great museum to visit. The displays were well set up and kept you interested in the bones! I really enjoyed that they took you through time and the development of the different species through time. It took well over two hours to go through and do justice to the displays.

We brought our Girl Guide Unit, 7 kids and 3 adults. The kids loved interacting with the people walking about with the fossils hidden in their side bags. They were in awe of all the dinosaurs and were stimulated in every direction.

We all really enjoyed learning about the history and seeing the huge dinosaur skeletons. Walked around the badlands and it really felt like a desert. Really neat experience!
