The Canadian Badlands Passion Play

Deep in the Canadian Badlands, a location famous for its prehistoric attractions, lies a hidden valley where the events of a not-so-distant past echo, a place where ancient Israel is reborn and you can experience, "the greatest story ever told." The 14,000 who come each July are moved to laughter and tears by the dramatic portrayal of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

This was a very interesting little museum. I am not a Star Trek fan, but they have items from several shows and movies.

Royal Tyrrell Museum

Since 1985, the Royal Tyrrell Museum has presented the fascinating evolution of dinosaurs through its collection of dozens of skeletons and hundreds of fossils.

Reviewed By JazzyButtons - Brantford, Canada

Well worth the drive from Calgary to Drumheller. Awesome place for both children and adults. Amazing education displays. Had a great time exploring the museum. It's busy, so parking can get tricky, but well worth any aggravation trying to find a spot. Take time to explore the outside, by walking up the stairs for a great view of the landscape.

Horsethief Canyon

Reviewed By tj2010 - Toronto, Canada

I have no idea why this site is not bragged about by Canadians far and wide. I've been to the Grand Canyon and Horsethief Canyon rivals it, in my opinion. I stumbled across this gorgeous spot on my last trip to Alberta and just had to bring the rest of my family here upon this most recent opportunity. Parking is free and plentiful. Site is completely accessible. There is a terrific storyboard onsite for some related history. We took in the views from both sides of the canyon and they are equally breathtaking. Made a little ground squirrel friend while there.

Hoodoos

Reviewed By ShanBarra - Aurora, Canada

We stopped at the hoodoos and took in the scenery. Great place for photo ops. Also, for the more adventurous, you can climb up the hillside and have a look down upon the hoodoos. It's a bit of challenging climb, but worth the spectacular view. A highlight of our stop in Drumheller.
