People frequently say something is "world class" when what they really mean is "it's pretty good." The Royal Tyrell, however, actually is world class. It may be the finest paleontological museum on the planet. It's certainly the most impressive and wonderful one that I've been...More

Drumhellar Alberta is known for the Discovery Point of Dinosaurs in all of Canada. The Royal Tyrrell Museum displays artifacts from the Dinosaur Prehistoric times which are extremely informative and a very good learning lesson no matter what your age is!!

Kids and dinosaur lovers will love this Museum. Its about 2hrs+ drive from Calgary to Drumheller. If its not for the kids, I will skipped visiting the Drumheller as nothing much to see. Good for 1st timers but 2nd time will be boring..

It cost $26 per adult and was a truly interesting place to visit. It was very crowded and had wonderful exhibitions. There were some complete skeletons of many dinosaurs, incomplete ones with missing parts and the clever museum people had made new bones to add...More
