This was basically a place to buy fossils and trinkets. We paid to see the other side of the building but it was not worth it.

Very rude children’s programming guide. Instead of instructing us to register and pay for a program, she grabbed the bucket and brush from my sons hands and said “I’ll take this.”More

You where informed about the children programs going on for the day and given an opportunity to purchase these activities but you chose not to and just do the Museum (which is great fun to). But you allowed your child to push his way into...More

We didn't actually go into the museum as we just left the Royal Tyrell Museum but did go into the gift shop. They have cool souvenirs etc there but nothing special you wouldn't find in any other gift shop in Drumheller.

Some animatronic dinos then, of course, you exit into cheap souvenirs. Need to pay extra for "program" . Playground nearby.

Great idea - would be nice to have a cross between this and the Tyrrell. This exhibit is just too short and very poorly labelled displays. The kids loved it and the play structure, but the adults could have used a bit more into.

Lots to see and do here. Dig for fossils. See real fossils. Fun facts and history. Buy a souvenir and stay for a visit. The dinosaurs are friendly.

Perfect for our 4 year old. He spent 2 hours there and was entertained the entire time. The Dino dig was better then the same activity at tyrell and the kids get to keep a fossil. We recommend!

My kids (4 and 6 years old) had lots of fun. It is a bit pricey, but nice place to spend an hour or so.
