Drumheller is rich with history, culture, and home-town hospitality. As you enter the valley, it’s like an out-of-this-world experience as you leave the prairies and immerse yourself among the layered valley walls. From dinosaurs to coal miners, to iconic live theatre and concerts, Drumheller has something for all ages.

The world-famous Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology is a must-see, but make sure to leave time to hike the badlands, float down the river, or enjoy our new trail system on an e-bike.
