The Glendive Dinosaur & Fossil Museum is dedicated to the glory of God the Creator and challenges the visitor to think seriously about issues related to "origins." To accomplish this the museum asks the visitor five questions:

Did mankind evolve from microbes purely as a result of accidental forces, or was life on earth divinely created making us accountable to our Creator?

Where does the evidence lead? Does it indicate a slow progression of organism from simple to complex over long periods of time through millions of transitional forms, or does it show creatures suddenly appearing on earth fully formed and complete?

Did the "fossil record" accumulate slowly over hundreds of millions of years on a planet billions of years old, or does it point to catastrophic fossilization and a mush "younger" earth?

Did the dinosaurs die out 65 million years ago, or did they co-exist with man and diminish within the last five thousand years?

Is there such a thing as irreducible complexity? Do recent scientific discoveries prove that life is far too complex for chance forces to produce - even in a "simple" cell - or could a random series of mutations over time account for the amazingly intricate mechanisms found in all living things?

Exhibits in the museum answer these questions with dinosaur and other fossil exhibit presentation and information being supplemented by the latest in paleontological, geological, archeological, and other scientific discoveries.

  • As a former public high school science teacher, I was thoroughly impressed with the attention to detail at each exhibit. Highly recommended for all those with an open mind and interested in natural history. The staff was open and willing to assist. The entire museum was modern and caters to all ages with many miniature diagrams at child level. The scientific factual content was thoughtfully presented. Enjoy your visit.
  • Nice collection of fossils and exhibits. The biblical "history" is good for a laugh, but it made me sad that children are learning these "facts" at a time when science is so important. I was hoping a museum in the heart of dinosaur country would have been more serious about it. Took away from my enjoyment, but the people working there were very friendly.
