  • I love that there are always new things to see at this museum! They constantly update displays, and there is tons of information for those who wanna know more. There is a new sitting lounge with activities for kids and chairs with cell phone charging stations. The extra activities are really fun for the kids. There is also a great audio guide app that gives you a self guided tour. This museum is awesome for the whole family!
  • It was a rather long drive from Calgary but it was worth it. The museum is world class with all the exhibitions and information. You can even see palaeontologists at work. I loved the journey through time where they explain how life on earth developed. Our kids loved the museum, there are many interactive learning stations like "build your own dinosaur". There is an affordable cafeteria and a playground When you are there, you should also walk the 2km Badlands Interpretive Trail which starts right outside the museum.
