  • If you like dinosaurs then you have to see this. The T-Rex and all the T-rex Skulls are terrific! Planetarium was good, but not a show stopper

  • There was so much here, you can take pictures in almost all the spots there and the fossils they had were amazing. We also looked at the cars painting and they were so realistic, looked like a photo put into a frame. They had nice people and had outdoor parts as well. Such a good place to learn and have fun.
  • The exhibit was amazing! So many kinds of dinosaur bones and fossils and very cool American Indian displays as well as some antique cars and quilts and replicas of the way people used to live. Went to the planetarium. It was somewhat interesting, but not enough to maintain my focus. I had hoped that Montana Sky would've been showing all of the stars at night and expanding to an outer space journey showing galaxies and constellations from telescopes and in space. That would've been amazing for the planetarium room.... Instead, it was just diagrams basically of the stars in our system and how to find them. Well, that's what I got out of it. Regardless, the Museum of the Rockies is definitely worth seeing. Their gift shop is very nice, too.
