Have taken the kids there several times...they love the dinosaurs. Also saw the King Tut exibit when they had it and that was excellent as well. Nice, clean, family friendly outing.

This is a great stop in Bozeman. Lots of hands on things for kids and always have new exhibits so take time to explore.

Everyone told us we had to check out the museum. It was my wife's choice to go. I wanted to see the town, and I wasn't in a museum mood, but I have to admit it is a nice little museum. The dinosaur/paleontology exhibits were very well done, as was the planetarium show. They were hosting an exhibit of rock and roll photographs selected by Graham Nash - whose photography skills are often overlooked. It was the high point for me. Other exhibits were enhanced by use of interactive displays.
