I found the museum a bit overwhelming. A lot to see and a lot to read. Children were running from exhibit to exhibit but to appreciate it properly I'd almost recommend not going with children or impatient adults. It's by far the best thing in drumheller. You can't not go if you're there. If you're not into dinosaurs it's not... More

I had been here about 15 years ago so I thought I knew what to expect. I was blown away. The quality of the exhibits was fantastic and the size of the place was incredible. We spent three hours wandering around and looking at things and we didn't even go in all that in-depth with things or we could have... More

I like the museum, the exhibits are interesting and draw you in particularly the first bit as soon as you walk in. It's fascinating to see that most of the artifacts were found in the area of the museum. I was with a young child and I would like to see the museum cater more to the younger children even... More

This museum and the surrounding area are fantastic. From the outdoors walk through the park to the amazing dinosaur skeleton collection, this museum provides education and entertainment at every turn. There are plenty of things to see and do for all ages and you could definitely spend a whole day here exploring all the museum and park have to offer.

Fantastic museum with lots of dinosaur exhibits. From small to big, all the fossils (and a few reproductions) are extremely interesting. So much information is available about this dinosaur fossil rich area - you could spend an entire day here. There are a few hands on exhibits but mainly just informative ones. The food area is great with good food... More

If you are a biblical creationist, don't look for supporting evidence in this museum. It is evolutional at full tilt. Being of the former persuasion, we go with a sure-sure approach. Being high-end evolutionists does not subtract from their professional approach to display. They are masters of the craft. The food services and washrooms are clean and competent.

We love taking our kids to Tyrrell. We promised our kids that we would take them and they couldn't stop talking about going to the dinosaur museum for days! They are in the process of renovating; the last two visits they've had different halls closed for updating. Although it's unfortunate that you miss part of the exhibits they've done it... More

This might as well be the most detailed and nicest museum I have even been into. Many of the bones were discovered in the area as well. Its very big and extremely detailed and scientific. Its interesting for all ages. I have read about dinosaurs, but I have known that there we so many different types existed. Another impressive thing... More
