A must stop for all of you dinosaur fans. It's well worth the drive from Calgary and there are nearby interesting spots you can explore by car.

Never a dull moment visiting here. They have done some remodeling and updated some exhibits. You have to see it. The kids loved it and had a great time. We will be going again soon

Recently visited with my family. The museum is a great history experience. Lots of things to see and you could spend 2-3 hours learning about the dinosaurs. Admission is a little pricey but still worth it.
