What a great place for kids and adults alike. Set in an amazing location in Canada's badlands, the Royal Tyrell is a must for curious dinosaur lovers, history buffs and budding geologists. Loved it and so did the kids.

We've been to the Royal Tyrrell Museum numerous times through out our lives and each time we go we are equally impressed. The displays, information and interactive media is second to none. Definitely worth a visit!

We had expected great things of this museum but were disappointed. The initial galleries were uninspiring. General palaeontological coverage was limited and much of the information was superficial and did liitle to enlighten anyone with even a small amount of geological knowledge. Many of the...More
