Town of Drumheller
Welcome to Drumheller!Located 130 km (81 mi) northeast of Calgary in Alberta's Badlands, the Drumheller Valley is best known for its diverse and unique topography. Made up of mostly barren terrain that includes grasslands, hoodoos, canyons and coulees, the area provides a vast landscape that is worthy of discovery, perhaps from the gaping jaw of the world's largest dinosaur statue in downtown Drumheller, which visitors are encouraged to climb into. Drumheller is best known as the home of the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology, a world-class facility dedicated to the study of Drumheller's early residents, the dinosaurs. Visitors to the museum can explore hundreds of preserved fossils and take part in interactive displays and exhibits. Golfers can enjoy a challenging day on the links with the rugged terrain and wind conditions acting as natural hazards. Other outdoor activities include hiking, skiing and taking a ride on the historic Bleriot Ferry, which crosses the powerful Red Deer River.
Enjoy 16 Tons of Fun at the Atlas Coal Mine National Historic Site.
