 Cafe/Teahouse  economical to moderate In East Coulee, approximately 20 minutes from Drumheller.  From Drumheller, take Highway 10 south and follow the Hoodoo Trail. As you pass through Rosedale, you might want to stop for a look at the suspension bridge. Further down the road, take a break at the famous hoodoos, carved from the ancient rock by wind and rain erosion.

Next stop - East Coulee. There are lots of signs, and only one road into town, so you really can't miss it! As you pull into town, turn left and go past the old garage and the East Coulee Motor Inn. A few blocks down the road, turn right at the community hall, and the museum will be dead ahead. Think you missed it? Don't worry, East Coulee is only 9 blocks long and 3 blocks wide - nothing is ever far away here.
