Drumheller Southern Alberta

If you see the world’s largest dinosaur, you’re in the right place. The towering replica – 4.5 times the size of a real T-rex – marks the visitor information centre in Drumheller. From there, you can plot your next adventure. ● Learn something: The Royal Tyrrell Museum will have you nerding out in no time. It’s home to some of the most remarkable prehistoric specimens ever unearthed. That includes an armoured nodasaur that is so amazingly well preserved that it looks more like a statue than a fossil. ● Cretaceous outdoors: Take a self-guided tour through the Badlands, or a guided tour that will reveal some of the wonders of the area, like “fairy chimneys,” twisting canyons and a slightly terrifying/exhilerating suspension bridge.

Homestead Antique Museum

Drumheller, Alberta
TripAdvisor Traveller Rating:

Reviews

The Homestead Antique Museum bears witness to the ingenuity and perseverance of the homesteaders who came with nothing to make a life in a new land. The museum displays a comprehensive collection of their wares—more than 10,000 antiques and artifacts from the Victorian and Edwardian eras. These include furniture, household accessories, artistic instruments, work implements, autos and garments. Go next door to the Murray House—an entire house purchased out of a 1919 issue of the Eaton’s catalog, which offers a tea room in July and August.
