“Best dinosaur museum ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Plenty of motorhome parking, extensive exhibits on multiple eras, some of the best specimens in the world, great activities if you arrive before 4pm, close to a decent RV park or two.
A must see.

“Amazing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

It's amazing to think that these creatures are an Alberta creation. Well worth the time and perfect for children and families, especially on a hot day when you don't want to be outside in the sun.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

I brought my six year old son and all he could say was "Ohmygod!!" At every exhibit. There was plenty of interactive exhibits, a huge array of dino fossils and the staff were friendly and very informed. The gift shop was surprisingly small but still well stocked. LOVED IT.

“Loved this place and so did my little one”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Took a family day trip to this museum, with ages ranging from 2 to 70. Everyone had a great time. Very educational as well. Wish we had more time to explore the are around the museum. Overall a great experience and will be returning in the future when our little one is older.
