So, this is a good dino museum. However, we are from the East Coast and had read so much for years about Jack Horner, Jurassic Park and the excavations he and his staff have done and continue to do right in the vicinity, so we made a special trip out here. This museum is connected to an active research center,... More

Excellent exhibits- especially Geckos and the Dinosaur exhibit. I spent a lot more time here than I expected to. The planetarium show that I saw (Dynamic Earth) was just ok though, skip it or check out one of the other shows.

It is about the only museum in town. It has some interesting stuff to look at. It is a good way to spend a few hours and feel like you did something worth your time. They have a neat planetarium.

Free, fun & educational is my idea of a good time. The Living History Farm (aka Tinsley House) at the Museum of the Rockies wins in all three categories. The experience includes a homestead house furnished with period decor, beautiful heirloom gardens (flowers & veggies), knowledgeable interpreters (I chatted with a lady cooking in the kitchen & a blacksmith) and...

This museum has the largest collection of dinosaur bones in the world! Its displays are A+. I am not a dino guy but after seeing the displays, it made it real. Imagine seeing at least 6 trycerotop skulls lined up showing different ages of maturity. Baby hatchling,tyranosaurus rex skeleton, and much more. The Taylor planetarium is just inside the door...

We really enjoyed the museum, this is a great place for kids of all ages plus adults. I was a little disappointed in the living history exhibit. It was very small and did not have a lot to offer. The dinosaur exhibits were good. Kids love them. As an adult I would have perfered more actual bones than just the... More

We LOVED visiting the Museum of the Rockies! We came all the way from Fresno, CA to visit the Museum of the Rockies (last week) ... visiting this museum was the highlight of our summer vacation trip (which included a road trip through Caribou-Targhee National Park, Yellowstone National Park, and the Grand Teton National Park.) My son is a "paleontologist-in-training,"... More

We were a little disappointed in this museum. The living history exhibit was only okay, nothing worth making a stop for. The dinosaur exhibits are okay but most are of plaster moldings and not actually bones, the largest T-rex is on tour in Japan and the other has just been shipped off to the Smithsonian. We decided to do a... More
