  • Love this museum, it is a must visit every time we are in the area. The exhibits are very interesting, my kids love the Tinsley House and being able to see history in action. The docents who work in the house are very knowledgeable about the time period and are able to answer any questions we have. The dinosaur exhibit is also a favorite with many of the fossils having been discovered in Montana. The planetarium shows occur frequently on the weekends throughout the day and are included in museum admission. This is a very child friendly museum with many things that children can touch and hold. There is a children's area upstairs for kids 8 and under with lots of fun activities. This is a great place to spend an afternoon or even longer!
  • We love the museum. Great exhibits and an awesome playroom upstairs. My 3 year old son loves going to see the dinosaurs and to play upstairs. My husband and I also enjoy it.
  • Outstanding exhibits. Great mix of visually stimulating displays with information heavy descriptions. Kids stops with toys/chairs. Definitely worth admittance fee.
  • This is a great museum and planetarium for adults and kids. The best dinosaurs anywhere! There's an entire kids' area upstairs and a huge traveling exhibit hall. The outdoor homestead with living history interpretation makes MOR one of the best values for your admission ticket.
  • 2 day admission was a great idea! No rush to see everything and plenty to explore from the GREAT dinosaur exhibit and the discovery zone for kids. The planetarium also features a different show every hour.
