Excellent museum in a weird and wonderful area. The displays are very informative and we spent an easy 2-3 hours wandering through the various galleries. It is worthwhile to allocate some time to explore the outside rock formations around the museum as well. Loved it and can highly recommend a visit.

The museum will appeal to so many and all ages. It has rich history--very easily explained. Presentations are also very thrilling, brings you right into the era. And the dinosaur recreation? Very realistic! You will learn how they clean and preserve all of the precious bones. Was an unforgettable experience. Translations available in many languages.

The museum itself is a beautiful building. The exhibits are all given lots of room, and allow for people moving through at their own pace. The museum provides great visual, audio, and text-based information on its artifacts, all of which are presented in a really clear and interesting way. It took us a half-day to get through it-time really well... More

This museum is located approx. 2 hrs outside Calgary. Lots of exhibits look carefully as some are casts of the original. Admission discount is available with CAA or ARC,a AAA card it's not well advertised. Beautiful full sized dinosaurs in the dinosaur hall. There is a short approx. 1 km hike outside the museum towards the left. Lots of little... More

They have the best collection of exhibits here, we purchased the audio stick that gives you a detailed explanation of each part, well worth it, was only $4 and gave us such an insight to each part, spent the best part of 3 hours in awe
