  • Outstanding museum, with a world-class paleontology section and a rotating set of traveling displays. Currently (February 25 - September 10, 2017) they have CROCS: ANCIENT PREDATORS IN A MODERN WORLD. Appropriate for ages 2 and up! Included in museum admission ($14.50 for adults). Annual membership for two adults is $65.00 per year, so it's paid for itself in less than 3 visits. Well worth it as a way to visit, plus provide ongoing support for the museum's mission.
  • We love the Museum of the Rockies. Don't miss this spot when you visit the area, and try to plan time to watch a presentation at the Planetarium. The permanent exhibits are sure to please and the traveling exhibits are always interesting. The children's area upstairs is nice to give parents a bit of a break.
  • We've had a membership for three years running now. Our kids love the museum and would go every day if they could. They have the Crocs! exhibit right now and it was really fun for them to check out the live crocodiles. The kids have a blast in the kids room upstairs and we enjoy checking out the planetarium. During the summer the living history exhibit is also very cool.
  • MOR is one of Bozeman's gems. I've been quite a few times and it never gets old, especially with the rotating exhibits. A lot of great work and research is going on there. I look forward to seeing the updated/renovated Welcome to Yellowstone exhibit— the old one was surprisingly sparse considering Montana's history. Always stop by if you have a chance.
  • The family had a great time here. Very well laid out and very informative. I would recommend to anyone.
