Our family loves to visit museums when we travel-and we have learned that our own Museum of the Rockies is one of the better small town museums out there.

This museum has the class of many of our country's best. No where else will you find a more superior dinosaur display and collection. A changing planetary show is especially well done.

This museum was very inviting and interesting. It had a lot of history in it and plenty of things to look at and do. The only regret i have about it is that i didn't have more time to see everything! Their laser shows are awesome and everyone should see one!

This was a good, fun, cheap way to spend a couple of hours. The dinosaur exhibits were excellent and they had a whole gecko show going on. The planetarium show was nice as well.

We had a few hours to spend prior to check in so stopped by the museum. While it is by no means a large city museum, it had great displays, and was impressive for a small town. I could especially see this being attractive for families!

I actually came here in August 2009 (I've been back to Bozeman since but was unable to stop at the museum). It was a great museum and I spent two days exploring it! I learned a lot and I still have my souvenirs from that wonderful vacation.

Supported by, and located near, Montana State University. Focused on dinosaurs big and small, because Montana has several locations of dinosaur fossils. Also has nice, balanced exhibits for local history and native American culture. Would have liked to wander the grounds in nicer weather.
