Great venue, the exhibits were awesome. Recommend going first thing in the morning as it is very quiet.

What an amazing museum. Take your time to look and read the display boards. We went after having an early supper and the museum was not as busy as it is earlier. This was our third or fourth visit through the years. The museum is kept up to a high standard. Make sure to get your picture with your favorite... More

I'm not a dinosaur fanatic and I've seen a few skeletons in my lifetime so I didn't consider the museum a must see. I was wrong. I was blown away by how much there was to see and actually touch and how well thought out and information the exhibits were. Will definitely definitely be going again.

This museum just had no end of fascinating things to look at and learn about. This might be my favorite ever museum along with the Museum of London in England and the museum of civilization in ottawa, and maybe the Ontario science centre for nostalgia's sake.

We have a 2 year old and 5 month old and the 2 year old loved it! We couldn't read as much as we wanted to because he was too excited running around roaring at all the dinosaurs. Haha. It was raining so we could only do the indoor exhibits but definitely worth it!

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.
