It's also home to the largest Triceratops collection anywhere! More than just dinosaurs, there is also a huge collection from early Montana as well as a pioneer living history house and farm.

The kids love the interactive Yellowstone experience upstairs and the perpetual motion machine on the main level. The exhibits change often and there is truly something for everyone. Even a planetarium that is scheduled to be renovated soon.

This museum is recognized internationally for its dinosaur collection and Indian artifacts. Yet my grandchildren, 4 and 6, found it fascinating and were never bored.
