While a small museum, MOR has a very extensive and fascinating display of dinosaurs. And if you have a small boy to bring along it will be a destination that will provide many memories.

Just what I said. Now, don't get me wrong it's obvious they've spent a lot of time and money on it. It's just they had a HUGE exhibit based solely on geckos.

The dinosaur displays were intense and almost too graphic for... More

Dr. Jack Horner's discoveries are well worth the stop! Triceratops skulls from infant to adult were very impressive.

They also have a "speciality" section they bring in, and change very few months. This visit... More

I took my seven year old after flying into Bozeman to go to Bigsky. We stayed way longer then we thought we would. We decided to check out the Children's museum upstairs and we were both glad we did. We had a blast! It was a great way to get some base knowledge for the things we would later see... More

It had many cultural exhibits. At the farmhouse outside they had a garden as someone would of had at the turn of the century and people to explain all the plants and a kitchen with pies cooking. Inside the museum was a great display of dinosaurs many which my husband and I have never seen.
