We visited the first time when we were in Bozeman last year, and our kids (8,5 and 2) loved it so much we had to go when we came back this year. There is so much to see. There are lots of fossils with good explanations, from dinosaur eggs to the full size triceratops and T rex. The traveling exhibits... More

We checked out the museum as per a recommendation from a friend and it was ok- not really our thing but it was interesting in some areas. The dinosaurs they have are really cool and amazing. The other exhibits we weren't as into seeing. $29 for 2 of us so worth checking out - if you had kids it would... More

This was one of the biggest collections of dinosaurs bone I have ever seen. The collection of other stuff was interesting too. Also the loved the little house and garden outside you can go thru. We saw 3 of the shows at the planetarium too.

Where to start - there is so much to say. I guess, most important, this is not to be missed! Some details first: Summer hours 8:00 am to 8:00 pm Memorial Day thru Labor Day. Cost: Kids, 5 - 17, $9.50, adults $14.50, and seniors $13.50. Perhaps important, admission is good for two days! Currently, through 12/31, there is a... More

There was a temporary display of an archeological dig near Pompeii. It was well done and interesting. Loved the local displays and the dinosaur display was fabulous. The house outside was interesting to see how people lived in the area years ago. Enjoyed the planetarium which went along with the temporary display.

By far the best, most extensive and impressive collection of dinosaur fossils I've ever seen. Nice (but small) planetarium experience. The living history farm outside is not to be missed! What a pleasant surprise! If you have a chance to see THE VILLAS OF OPLONTIS NEAR POMPEII exhibit, it's a very interesting one.

Lots of stuff to do, not to mention all the dinosaurs to look at. Great place to take the kids. The planetarium is well worth the trip.

I have a curious 12 year old that likes to tough everything, and this museum was made for him! Something for everyone here, beautifully done.

Loved the dinosaur exhibit. Understandable for all. Varied media to hold interest. Could have lived without the Pompeii exhibit, but excellent ratings for the history and Native sections, as well as the planetarium. Can't beat the price for two days of fun and learning.
