The Badlands

The Badlands is home to Drumheller which is the hub for palaeontologists both young and old. It is where the Albertosaurus was first discovered and home to the amazing Tyrell Museum. The museum is located 6 km (4 mi) northwest of the town of Drumheller in southern Alberta’s Canadian Badlands – where some of the world’s most significant dinosaur finds have been made. A real-life Jurassic World!

Home to some 125,000 fossil specimens, one of the most popular and impressive exhibits is the gigantic Dinosaur Hall with nearly 40 mounted dinosaur skeletons. Tyrannosaurus rex—”king of the lizard tyrants”— dominates the display, awing children and adults alike.

Drumheller is easily accessed on a fly-drive holiday from Calgary or you can take advantage of a new day-tour from Calgary operating 3 times weekly from June 1-September 30.
