Drumheller – Dinosaur Capital of the World

The township of Drumheller in Alberta, Canada promotes itself as the ‘Dinosaur Capital of the World’.


There are a number of Dinosaur related attractions throughout the township.

One of the main attractions is the Royal Tyrell Museum of Palaeontology. Click here to read my blog post specifically one of the largest museums dedicated to palaeontology.

Also there is the smaller interactive museum, Fossil World Discovery Centre at 1381 North Dinosaur Trail.



Overlooking the town is a large T-Rex sculpture that is 86 feet tall, 151 feet long, and weighing 65 tonnes. Click here to read my blog post about The World’s Largest Dinosaur.

This large T-Rex is surrounded by many brightly colourful dinosaur sculptures dotted around the town.

The Chamber of Commerce placed 33 dinosaur sculptures around Drumheller. Many private businesses have added their own. There are also around 20 dinosaur murals painted across the town.

A non-profit community group the Drumheller Dinoarts Association fundraises and maintains the various dinosaur sculptures and artwork. Check out their Facebook page.
