    When you drive to Drumheller, to go to the museum, you will repeatedly ask yourself...."why am I doing this". You see next to nothing, till you begin the decent into the valley. Then it changes dramatically.

    The town itself is very busy, in the summer and very hot. I understand there are rattlesnakes in the area, but alas I have never had the fortune of seeing one, despite travelling a fair amount. It looks very cool to see the area.

    The Royal Tyrell is an amazing place to go if you enjoy paleontology. We recently went there and it was awesome! There are so many different dinosaurs AND other creatures there that you're guaranteed to find something that everyone will like.

    The gift shop has a great selection too, and Coyote Jack's at the cafeteria tastes great, too. They have different creatures from many time periods, including Cambrian, Precambrian, Jurassic and Devonian. There are programs there, and the Badlands Hike is one of them.

    Just spent 3 enthralling hours at the Tyrrell. Awesome content and stylish displays, with a compelling timeline narrative journey that takes you through the various exhibits.

    The Royal Tyrell is great. There is a ton to look at/learn about. Everyone I have taken here is initially hesitant about it but is pretty wow'd when leaving.

The treat is when goes to see the museum. It has everything imaginable about dinosaurs and is so darned cool for people of all ages. If you have kids, they will love it.

The one thing I have not done, is go walking around the area, as I understand that one can see various digs that are underway and selectively participate for some apparently. I often see mule deer, when venturing remotely close, which is nice to see.

This place is exceedingly cool. Highly recommended.

It was really nice to go up into some of the high up places of the Badlands and see the "Seven Wonders of The Badlands". We saw "Abraham Lichen", too!
