If you are visiting Bozeman or new to town, The Museum of the Rockies is a right of passage. An absolutely amazing array of what Montana is in history and culture. Perfect place to take the kids. Their kids exploration center upstairs is great for hours of entertainment. No matter who you are or what you are looking to learn,... More

We enjoyed all the exhibits so much. It is a world class museum. There is something for everyone. Western and Native American history, a great chocolate exhibit, dinosaurs, and a cool planetarium.

Loved everything about this museum - my two teenagers were as interested as we were - we even returned the next day (included in the admission price) for another visit.
