Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    What a pleasure to visit a museum which was accessible to all levels, child and adult without exhibits being dumbed down and visitors being patronised. (Eg: how do you think dinosaurs felt?).
    The outstanding exhibition was highly educational for example in describing the various stages of earth’s evolution and with an interesting machine showing the amount of time each geological aeon lasted. This was fun for kids. The information itself clearly explained how life evolved and how thermo-Phillip micro organisms released oxygen as an by product of photosynthesis over about 3 billion years completely altering the earth’s atmosphere.
    A clear exposition of the scientific method: observation, hypothesis, testing and theory would be a useful addition to nearly all the museums I have visited and it was there!
    The outstanding section and collection of dinosaur fossils was enhanced, for example by a short video explaining how growth rings in bone can be measured to estimate age and how bone circumference can be used to estimate the weight of adult dinosaurs (as much as 8,000 Kg).
    It was particularly interesting and encouraging to see scientific paper references for the more academic visitors.
    I liked the sponsors being acknowledged as caring and feeding a skeleton!
    Areas for children seemed popular and a room of mythical creatures surely encouraged younger persons engagement

    I didn’t expect to enjoy this museum as much as I did! I did not expect much since it was located on the MSU campus and looked like it was in an office building. It was packed full of interesting facts and incredible artifacts. It included electricity, computers and AI. Due to arriving late in the afternoon, we only had just over an hour to roam through; however, we could have used more time. It was well worth the time.

    If you like museums and you’ll be spending any length of time in the Bozeman area, I highly recommend checking this place out.

    It might not look like much from the outside, but there are tons of interesting things to see and read about once you step inside.

    You don’t have to be from the area to apprecaite the effort being put in to preserve and display the region’s local history. My visit here was truly pleasant.
