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.
Awesome portrayal of the birth, life & death of Jesus Christ with about 200 volunteer actors! Many well known scriptures portrayed in this amazing Badlands location. Very well organized from the play to parking to the bathroom break. So many volunteers enjoying their role in...MoreHope you can join us next year for our 25th.

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

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.

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.

We enjoyed the free and easy trip across on the ferry. The gentleman on duty was very friendly and informative and gave us some good tourist information. We drove around the other side and saw some interesting places and followed the highway back to Drumheller. Easy and different experience.

The Atlas Coal Mine National Historic Site is considered Canada's most complete historic coal mine and offers visitors a range of interpretive tours, on the surface, underground and up into the last wooden tipple in the country. We tell the amazing stories of the miners who came to seek their fortunes in the Drumheller Valley, in the heart of the Canadian Badlands.
Very friendly and knowledgeable staff, really enjoyed the history and stories they shared. We paid general admission and toured the grounds on our own, there was a lot of interesting things to see. It also included a train tour and it was fun as well.
