The Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology is a museum that hosts Canada's largest collection of dinosaur fossils. It boasts 375,000 visitors a year, the largest of all provincial museum attractions. It opened on September 25, 1985. The Royal Tyrrell Museum is located in the northwest quadrant of the Town of Drumheller, in Midland Provincial Park.


The town is named for Colonel Samuel Drumheller, who bought land in 1910 and started coal mining operations here in 1911.

Drumheller became a railway station in 1912. It then incorporated as a village on May 15, 1913, town on March 2, 1916 and a city on April 3, 1930. Over a 15-year period, Drumheller's population increased תבנית:Percentage from 312 in 1916[1] to 2,987 in 1931[2] shortly after becoming a city.

To benefit from provincial and federal grants,תבנית:Citation needed the City of Drumheller dropped its city status in favour of town status when it amalgamated with the Municipal District (M.D.) of Badlands No. 7 on January 1, 1998.[3] As a result of the amalgamation, Drumheller became Alberta’s largest town in terms of area at תבנית:Convert/km2תבנית:Convert/track/abbr/תבנית:Convert/track/disp/תבנית:Convert/track/adj/.

The 1998 amalgamation with the M.D. of Badlands No. 7 resulted in Drumheller absorbing seven unincorporated communities that were previously under the jurisdiction of the M.D. – Aerial, Cambria, East Coulee, Lehigh, Nacmine, Rosedale and Wayne. Drumheller also previously absorbed the sizeable communities of Midlandvale, Newcastle and North Drumheller during annexations while under city status. Eladesor, Kneehill, Rosedale Station, Western Monarch (Atlas)[4] and Willow Creek are numerous other localities within Drumheller[5] that were absorbed through past annexations or its eventual amalgamation with the M.D. of Badlands No. 7.

In total, Drumheller has absorbed at least 13 other communities in its history, some of which are now recognized as neighbourhoods or districts within the town.[6]

Drumheller has been the filming location for more than 50 commercials, television and cinematic productions including Running Brave, MythQuest, Unforgiven, ABC's miniseries Dreamkeeper and TNT's miniseries Into the West.


In the 2011 Census, the Town of Drumheller had a population of 8,029 living in 3,182 of its 3,418 total dwellings, a 1.2% change from its 2006 population of 7,932.
