The Planetarium wows!

My 12 year old and 6 year old were entranced for 2 hours and wanted to return the next day. The dinosaurs are the best part but the Planetarium is quite the experience.

The Museum of the Rockies is a wonderful family museum. There were so many hands-on exhibits and areas for children to dress up, do activities, observe real scientists working on fossils, read, and "be" a bird. There were props they could utilize, and awesome exhibits to learn from. We didn't have any children with us, but we could see how... More

Very impressive, won't disappoint! Reasonably priced - be sure to ask for your AAA discount! We did find the planetarium movie we saw to be a bit too technical for non-scientists. But fascinating just the same and the displays and stories are first class.

Spent an afternoon wandering the MSU campus and happened to walk in to the museum right before the start of the planetarium show. Was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the show fr such a small museum. Definitely worth a side trip.

Although we did enjoy our visit - this is more of a family-friendly - kid oriented museum w/ lots of hands on experiences for the wee ones. But as a couple w/o youngsters we felt a bit "invaded" by kids all around - we were looking more for fine art and a typical quiet atmosphere. We support the concept behind... More

I just visited the Museum of the Rockies. I took my 5 year old with me. It was his first visit. He was fascinated with the Rube Goldberg type machine on the entrance into the dinosaur exhibit. After we watched the balls go around the machine numerous times. We went into the dinosaur area. He was super excited to see... More

This is a great museum for little and big kids alike who love dinosaurs. I wish we had more time to spend here because the number of skeletons and the information available was amazing. Highly recommend!

It has the most amazing dinosaur collection! You can easily see how the TRex could easily eat a small child by the size of his head and teeth! We also got to touch a meteor and watch a show in the planetarium.

You won't find highbrow art museums in Bozeman, but we do have Dinos. This is a must go visit. You can get through it in 1-2 hours. Good kid stuff. The Dinos are curated by Jack Horner of Jurassic Park fame. You won't be disappointed as long as you realize it is a Dino Museum and not the Louvre.
