We came in April, about 10:30 in the morning. Very friendly staff and lots of staff. That is where it lost a star from us. The staff is always hovering, it's great if you have a question, but not so much if you don't. I'm not sure if they just want to be helpful or if they are worried about... More

The 5th grade team and parent went to visit between basketball games. Those who had been before were amazed at the new additions in the last two years. The volunteers pointed out animals to look for and related stories that fascinated the kids. Thought we'd be here just an hour but stretched to almost 2 (lunch calling). They loan strollers... More

The Glendive Dinosaur and fossil Museum is the largest dinosaur and fossil museum set in the context of biblical history. When entering Glendive from the east you will see a big building that looks like an ordinary dinosaur museum...but make no bones about it...this is no ordinary museum. Ran by creationists the Glendive Dinosaur Museum is non denominational and is... More

Great museum showing many of the fossils found in Eastern Montana. Many of the greats are here. An interesting creationism theory is put forth in gift shop literature & some of the exhibits. Your kids will love it. I had fun as a big kid while stimulating a new thought process.

The staff at the museum are very friendly and tell you up front that this is a museum based on the bible. The dinosaur skeletons are very well done as are the fossil displays and are well worth viewing. Atheists, like myself, are well served to visit (even with children) just to see how you can't condense 4.5 billion years... More

Yes - this place comes at dinosaurs from a biblical perspective and no we do not belief the earth is only 6,000 years old and dinosaurs were on the ark. Getting that out of the way...this place is absolutely fascinating, the facilities are top notch, and the people are really friendly and helpful. The fish within a fish? AMAZING!! So... More

I would like to first say that the Museum is one of the most wonderful and refreshing experiences I have had in researching Dinosaurs. After years of continual brainwashing and evolution in the secular mainstream world, this museum is in line with my belief as a Follow of Yahashua (Jesus). A must see if you home school and follow Christ.... More

Has some great fossils and castings of fossils which are very interesting, however is privately owned and pushes the views of the owners in regard to creationism verses evolution.
