Recently, I had the opportunity to visit the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller. The Tyrrell Museum is a center of paleontological research that contains numerous specimens from the Alberta Badlands.
The Museum houses one of the world's largest displays of dinosaurs, and has a range of fun & creative educational programs that bring the prehistoric past to life.
The Royal Tyrrell Museum is a popular Canadian Tourist Attraction that receives over 400,000 visitors per year.
The Royal Tyrrell Museum is named after geologist Joseph Burr Tyrrell, who discovered the first reported dinosaur fossil in the Red Deer Valley in 1884 - by accident.
I enjoyed visiting this museum, I liked the fact that it was quite big and full of intriguing exhibits. Yes, it was a lot of dinosaurs but I didn't really get bored because there were a range of attractions from dinosaur structures, to fossils and exhibits depicting sea life.
The Royal Tyrrell Museum is extremely family friendly and as you drive through Drumheller, you'll see that the whole area is garnished with colourful dinosaur figures that the kids will just love pointing out.
The Museum had interesting tunnels and even a glass path that you can walk over, with specimens underneath.
If you go on a day trip to this museum in Drumheller, you may choose to get an All Day Admission - which allows you unlimited access to the galleries for the entire day.
Alternatively you can choose specific activities, such as:
The Seven Wonders of the Badlands: A 60 minute guided hike through the badlands to discover rocks that tell stories, ancient giants and other wonders.
Dinosite: A 90 minute journey through the badlands to discover real dinosaur remains still on the ground and to learn about the creatures and environment of ancient Alberta.
The Royal Tyrrell Museum is open 7 days a week from mid May to September, and open Tuesdays through to Sundays from October to early May.
Thanks for Reading!
