This museum was being built last time we visited the area, so we were really keen to see it completed. We called in on a snowy Thursday morning, the staff took our money but offered no advice or direction on the museum, so we wandered...More

Visited with my teenage daughter, after being to Drumheller last year. This was still interesting, and informative. There is lots to do and interact with. A great teaching experience seemingly aimed at pre-teen but worked for us. Some of the information was a little jumpy,...More

Another beautiful building with lots of parking. The layout of the museum is quite strange and doesnt flow, but the exhibits are excellent! An abundance of information and fossils, lots to see. The mock up oil rig is a disappointment and lost my interest quickly....More

I was impressed with the building, the dinosaurs' bones, the hands on of the exhibits, the movement of going from one exhibit to the next!
