  • No children with me so can't say I got to see the whole place and all it has to offer, but a couple of the activity rooms were under construction and wasn't much going on other than the souvenir shop....  more »
  • My family and I visited while in Drumheller for the day. It was a great stop. We paid for my daughter to do the fossil dig and she loved it. The rubber pellets look just like sand! She had so much fun...  more »

  • Was expecting cheezy tourist trap. Boy was I wrong. Kids had a great time and there was a lot of very interesting things. It doesn't compare to the Tyrrell Museum, but complements it with more fun and memorable things for kids to do. We go to the Tyrrell every year, and this is the perfect antidote for kids who start to get bored with the Tyrrell. I'm glad we came!
  • This is a fantastic place to take kids! My kids absolutely loved the facility, the animatronic T-Rex was fantastic, very realistic, the playground is great, the displays are fascinating. We paid to do the fossil dig and gemstone collection, the fossil dig was great, staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. My children had a great time going through all the fossils, unearthing a T-Rex skeleton and were thrilled that they got to keep whichever fossil they liked best. The gemstones are nice as well, but my younger one didn't have much patience for it - my daughter loved it however. The only issue I had with it was that the water area had a significant amount of bleach in it, which could harm the kids hands & clothes, so I kept them in the dry section.
  • We really enjoyed the fossil discovery world. There is a lot to take in so be sure to give yourself a lot of time. In addition to the museum we went in a tour which was very informative. Our guide was great.
  • Much smaller and less attractive than the Royal Tyrrell Museum, but honestly this place is WAY better for young children. My kids had a blast at Fossil World
  • I brought my family into this store to buy some keepsakes. We had our eye on a few really amazing pieces and fossil displays, I asked the guy at the counter if the prices were final or if he was flexible. His response was quite abrupt in my opinion, my question was one of due diligence not meant to insult. I would expect that the answer of either yes or no would be delivered with top notch customer service, especially when selling merchandise that costs upwards of $20,000 dollars. Today you lost out on a sale of $2000, I proceeded down the road and was treated very fairly and found a great peice. I will not be back.
