A must see if you're in Calgary. Great layout, easy to navigate and reasonable prices in the gift shop. I was really impressed!

The museum was very well laid out and very interesting. I went with my wife for a quick last minute vacation and we really enjoyed it. My only recommendation, as I say with all museums, is that I think it should be admission by donation to help spread the knowledge to those who cannot afford the hefty cost ($18)

Well worth the drive from Calgary to Drumheller. Awesome place for both children and adults. Amazing education displays. Had a great time exploring the museum. It's busy, so parking can get tricky, but well worth any aggravation trying to find a spot. Take time to explore the outside, by walking up the stairs for a great view of the landscape.

Well, the answer is yes, obviously. Even if you are not into dinosaurs that much, after visiting this museum you will be.

Drumheller. In the middle of nowhere, yet, you do not want to miss this amazing museum.

Some exhibits are so stunning that they will leave you staring at them for ages. Everything is meticulously marked, described, explained and you could literally spend all day here.

You can also take a peek into the workshop or ask friendly staff.

Early morning visit is recommended if you want to avoid crowds.

Overall impression? Stunning! Go and enjoy the land of dinosaurs.
