You can't leave Bozeman without going to the museum. It is an amazing and extremely educational attraction. Kids will love all the dinosaurs. If you're close enough it is worth coming back when they get their new exhibitions.

I’m very fortunate to have one of the top museums in the country right in my backyard. If you miss the Museum of the Rockies while in Bozeman Montana, you’ve missed a very special place.

This is one of my favorite museums I ever visited. Not as good as the Natural History Museum of Utah, but Montana is a prime fossil area and most of the dinosaur fossils are local. The museum is not only nice but in a scenic...More

It depends on how much the kids are into dinosaurs and the timing of the planetarium show. If it is the 'right' show the 4&6 year old might enjoy it so check the schedule and that will I think determine it. 1-2 hours
