We came to Drumheller for the weekend, specifically to visit the Royal Tyrrell Museum, which does not disappoint. Amazing array of dinosaurs and fossils and cleverly laid out. Black Beauty (T-Rex) was certainly the highlight. Only negative thing; the staff, especially, at the entrance were either half asleep or didn't possess great customer service skills, other than that great place and will come again!

Along our journey we made a stay over stop in Drumheller. The museum was interesting enough for a tween and teen kids. The gift shop had a nice collection of souvenirs. And the little “trail” outside the museum was a nice peaceful activity. Tickets need to be booked online in advance due to COVID. There was maybe 7-10 families inside when we went at opening time in late October.

The museum houses incredible sights . Very well put together . Took about two hours and we didn’t even read everything . Was well organized during covid with spaced timed entry . Make sure to book tickets ahead . Can’t wait to bring other family back to see it . Wish I hadn’t waited 30 years to return !

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the museum and both agreed it's one of the best we've ever visited. Interactive exhibits, lots of information, and really wonderfully curated. We arrived when the museum opened with our booking email confirmation, and were two of only a handful of individuals in the museum for the hour it took us to go through. The gift shop was also really nice, and staff friendly.
