The T. Rex Discovery Centre in Eastend is not the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller... Don't go expecting a huge place with hundreds of specimens on display. This interpretive centre is devoted almost exclusively to the life and times of Tyrannosaurus rex, particularly the specimen...More

Neat place. I couldn't bring my dog inside so our visit was short as it is super hot there on the hill. Nice gift shop
