  • It's an amazing place filled with history and in a beautiful hamlet. It's nice to go to places where you can learn and experience a time that's not your own. The tours they support are also pretty great as well.
  • This was our 4th time to check out the East Coulee Museum Spring Fest. As usual, we had a great time. The museum itself is such a treat, the miners room is very sobering. Not sure how those poor miners could stand going down into the mines every day...The creaky old wooden floors remind me of buildings long gone, glad this one is still around to tell it's story.

Where to stay in Drumheller

If you want to embrace the town's Jurassic obsession, stay in a fun--if somewhat tacky--dinosaur-themed hotel. Most of the town's accommodations sit along the main roads of South Dinosaur Trail and Railway Avenue East, with a few budget-friendly motels, bed and breakfasts, campgrounds, and cabins to the north of the river.
