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.
