This museum is well laid out and informative. Prehistoric times are well illustrated and the dinosaur models imposing.

Interesting and informative visit to museum. Since we were there in October, we did not view outside exhibits. Also, not crowded so a nice casual roam.

Great place to visit for all the family. Amazing exhibits which demonstrate the size and diversity of these animals. I liked the height measure using a limb bone. So much to see and reasonably priced entry.

This is an amazing museum. We spent most of the day there in winter. Probably would have been more outside except that there was snow all over. This is considered to be the best dinosaur museum on the planet. It is huge but the exhibit includes less than one percent of the fossils that are located in the museum's back... More

Beautiful museum. Visited last summer with a big group of family. Adults and Children all enjoyed. I suggest going when it first opens because it does get busy. If time permits I would have loved to sign my kids up for one of the many activities and workshops they provide. A must see if you are camping or touring in... More

If you ever visit Alberta, one should take the time to visit the Royal Tyrrell Museum at Drummhelher , Not only is the museum a great educational experience, the hoodoos nearby and the old mine bridge makes for a great day trip.

This is more than a museum, it's an interactive, educational all encompassing experience. There is so much to do but many tours/classes sell out early so get there early and plan your day. The museum itself is stroller and wheelchair friendly but you won't get far outside. Wear comfortable shoes and bring a water bottle. It's dessert hot in the... More

I wasn't sure whether my 6 year old son would be old enough to appreciate the museum because it's "more science than animatronics" but he loved it! We got a pass for the year from the AMA so we saved money and went two days in a row, and even signed up for a fossil casting class. It was great... More

Came here with our two little guys and it was great! The kids were blown away by absolutely everything and it was really great for us adults too. Keep up the great work, definitely going to be planning a return trip in the near future.
