One of the best experiences I've ever had. The staff person was very friendly and informative! The displays were absolutely fantastic; the backdrops were very well done and the gophers were phenomenal! Each diorama was memorable and I can't wait to go back and visit this museum again some day!

Hilarious, well maintained, and a fun little stop. The gopher hole museum is a treasure! The puns for each little diorama are excellent and the gift shop and facilities are clean and cute. Highly recommend for anyone who wants to visit a strange little tourist stop that also has some unusual history.

Visited last summer, and this was such a fun and unique pit stop on the way home from Drumheller. The gopher displays are very cute and detailed, and the lady who works here is nice and friendly. I really enjoyed looking around at all the displays. This museum is great for all ages and I would definitely come back if I am in the area again. There’s also a gift shop!
