Amenities & Accessibility

Strollers & Wheelchairs

You can rent a stroller for $3 at the Visitor Services Desk in the main lobby.

For visitors with limited mobility, we provide manually-operated wheelchairs for $3 on a first-come, first-served basis at the Visitor Services Desk.

The Museum is equipped with accessible restrooms, and both floors are accessible by elevator or wheelchair ramp. Museum exhibits are wheelchair and stroller accessible. 

Fire regulations and space restrictions do not permit exceptionally wide/large strollers in the galleries. If you bring your own stroller and it does not comply with our policy, you can exchange it, free of charge, for a Museum stroller.


Download the Royal Tyrrell Museum App before you arrive, or while onsite. Take a journey through time at your own pace!

Available (with audio) in English, French, Spanish, Chinese (Simplified), German, and Japanese.

It's free from the App Store for iOS devices.

Animals are not allowed inside the Museum, except service dogs with documentation from an approved certification organization. Pets on leashes are permitted on the trails around the Museum in Midland Provincial Park.
