This museum is excellent!! The entire family was mesmerized by the authentic exhibits. We spent several hours going through the dinosaur exhibits. They have a great guitar display and a very interesting old farm on site. Great for the entire family!

Great little museum for the dino enthusiast in your family. If you love T-Rex or triceratops, don't miss it. Friendly, knowledgeable staff and interesting exhibits well worth a little side trip if you're traveling through Bozeman on business or pleasure. They also have a nice...More

Weird guitars and dinosaurs! A nice museum, air conditioned and something for everyone. And some pioneer stuff that didn't really interest yours truly.

The Museum of the Rockies is always a great place to go. I like to go on a rainy day during the week when it is really quiet but anytime you go you’ll find something very interesting to discover.

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
