The dinosaur exhibit at The Smithsonian can’t hold a candle to the exhibit at the Museum of the Rockies. It is so informative and breathtaking. Makes one’s imagination soar! A must see if you travel to Montana.

When entering the Museum you are immediately greeted and asked if you had been there before. Volunteers stopped and chatted as we wandered through.

Response from Christopher S | Reviewed this property |
It depends on how much the kids are into dinosaurs and the timing of the planetarium show. If it is the 'right' show the 4&6 year old might enjoy it so check the schedule and that will I think determine it. 1-2 hours
