“Check out the Art exhibit before May 13”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2012

Bozeman is very lucky to have this jewel of a musuem. The current art exhibit is very good. Although, it could have had better lighting. There is always something new and interesting going on there. Check it out!

If you like dinosaurs, you've gotta make time for this fantastic museum. They have the largest dinosaur skull in the world there - it's a t-rex. Also, Jack Horner is the Curator of Paleontology, Museum of the Rockies

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.
