Royal Tyrrell Museum Drumheller
#1 of 258 Museums in Alberta
Located in the Alberta Badlands amongst one of the most fertile sources of fossils, the Tyrrell Museum is perhaps the finest dinosaur museums and research facilities in the world.
While it certainly is an out-of-the-way place, the Royal Tyrell is one of the great museums in the world insofar as its layout, its interactivity (especially if you've got children in tow), and its collection.

Reynolds-Alberta Museum Wetaskiwin
#3 of 258 Museums in Alberta
We’ve been coming here for years with our kids and this and the Royal Tyrrell are our two favourite museums in Alberta.
If you're into cars, or anything car related, like driving, lifestyles of the rich and famous, history, or style, then you'll need lots of space on your camera when you visit this museum.

The museums give the public an excellent insight into the great people that have paved the way to give Canadians freedom and an amazing quality of life.

#23 of 258 Museums in Alberta
Bunty, the very knowledgeable museum guide, gave us some background on the gophers and pointed out the more unique gophers.
It's a rather odd place but the museum and dioramas featuring gophers in various poses that celebrate the hamlet are very well done.

Jasper-Yellowhead Museum & Archives Jasper
#26 of 258 Museums in Alberta
This is fairly small like most other museums in the Rockies, however that said it has a lot of interesting exhibits and information about early pioneering years in the Rockies and at Jasper in particular.
After visiting bigger museums later during our trip in different areas of the Rockies, we realised what a gem this place is.
The Hangar Flight Museum Calgary
#27 of 258 Museums in Alberta
