Drumheller Travel Guide: 84 reviews and 205 photos

Drumheller is situated 125 km from Calgary (1 ½ hour drive). First thing you see coming from Calgary over highway 9 is Horseshoe Canyon with a panoramic view on a part of the Alberta Badlands.

Once in town you will find dinosaurs everywhere and in all sizes. The biggest is in front of the Visitor Information Centre.

Drumheller is starting point for visiting the badlands through the Hoodoo Drive Trail and the Dinosaur Trail.

The most important sight in (or better just outside) Drumheller is the Royal Tyrrell Museum with an impressive collection of dinosaurs.

    I thought the museum was fantastic - only wish we'd gone when our son was young - he was mad about dinosaurs. leyle

    A great page Jaap! We specifically drove through the Red River Valley to see those amazing Hoodoos but did not have time to take in the Museum :-( As you say, Drumheller is well worth a visit!

    We had a breakfast in Drumheller, but I didn't take pictures and we missed to see the museum.

    I could not agree more, the museum is an absolute must see in any weather! My wife and I were very impressed. G'day from Australia.

    Drumheller is a must see activity for me in Canada. When I finally make it to Calgary I really have to go. Thank you for giving me more of a taster than the 1 photo I've seen before!
