  • Super awesome museum! There is always something new and it is a great place for the family! I'm in college but my favorite part is still the interactive kid corner! I could spend all day there! Worth the price of admission!
  • This is one of my favorite museums in Montana. Spectacular exhibits and the planetarium is out of this world. Highly recommended!!
  • 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!
  • Outstanding exhibits. Great mix of visually stimulating displays with information heavy descriptions. Kids stops with toys/chairs. Definitely worth admittance fee.
  • 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.
