Listen to the guide when you enter. He gave an excellent historical talk. I wondered about the accuracy of the information and what type of revisionist history might be at play when one of the signs on the wall said Israel bombs suburbs of Cairo in the 1960's. What relevance that had to American history in the 1800's wasn't clear.

Fossils found primarily in the Montana/Idaho/Wyoming area. Citations of the research papers leading to scientific discoveries based on the fossil finds. Planetarium shows. Nothing to dislike.

This easily accessed museum is great for all ages. The kids will enjoy the extensive dinosaur and pioneer history sections. The "fashion" exhibit was great too! Really a large, well planned museum associated with Montana State University at Bozeman.

Very good exhibits, but we expected a museum that would work for our 9 year old grand daughter and 12 year old grand son. Exhibits had lots and lots of words and only sone activities. Ok for the 12 year old. I would not have bothered to even go if it was only our 9 year old.
