Feel like a kid again and wander through the amazing collection of dinosaur fossils! You can peak into the lab where palaeontologists spend thousands of hours freeing fossils from their rocky packages or go on a dino dig. You really can’t visit Drumheller without spending...More

Great family activity. We joined two programs: A. Dinosite (with Lauren... she was exceptional). B. Fossil casting (Kalie... great educator and very patient). What a great day!

Having visited a fair share of museums on my travels, I would say this museum truly lives up to its mandate to be an international leader in the area of palaeontology despite being a relatively young museum. The displays are incredible--most of which are original,...More

We went there at the opening to avoid the crowd. An excellent museum with lots of information about the dinosaurs and the evolution of their life. Lots of free parking, outside walks bring you on top of a hill were you can see the badlands....More
