My family and I were going on a trip to lake Louis and we stopped at this museum on the way. I personally found it boring and you have to do a lot of reading. My favourite types of museums are one with hands on...More

This is a really intelligently designed museum, with a great mix of static exhibits, well-written information and videos. The stars are of course the dinosaurs. There are so many amazing original fossils - our usual discussion in the car afterwards of 'what was the best...More

We took our daughter here to learn about Dinosaurs but we were actually disappointed. Even though the rooms & displays showed a lot of facts, we didn't find the museum was laid out very well. As other people have stated, there are better dinosaur displays...More

Way more real fossils and displays vs. the cast displays that you see in other dinosaur museums. The lab was amazing to see. This is where all the magic happens.

Been wanting to go here for a long time. A must stop if your close to Drumheller. This is a steal for under $13.

A fascinating insight into the pre-human world with some wonderful specimens on show, especially the armour-plated nodosaur. It was busy the day we visited, but I never felt crowded and could look at leisure. A great hit with my 8-year-old too.

Hi Shannon. Personally, I would get a hotel for the night as there's definitely enough to fill an entire day plus the next half day or so with activities for your family. The boys will probably love the go-karts and... More
