You will constantly see people asking, "What things are a must-see when visiting Bozeman"? Typically you get 50% of the people saying all the things they absolutely love and 50% of the people will tell you to not come here, using their choice of words.
I will say if you are already in Bozeman or visiting Bozeman, the Museum of the Rockies is an absolute must. Not only do you get to see a glimpse into the past, but you also get to learn about many different cultures in a beautiful building that is a Smithsonian Affiliate, and houses a full T-Rex Skeleton.

Montana's Museum Of The Rockies Is For Everyone! Check It Out
Museum of the Rockies
is nestled right next to Bobcat Stadium in Bozeman. The Museum is part of the American Alliance of Museums
, which means that the Museum of the Rockies is one of the 1,095 museums to hold this distinction. With over 33,000 museums nationwide, this is quite an accomplishment.
The Museum of the Rockies is also part of the Montana Dinosaur Trail
. What is that? It is a trail that runs through the state of Montana and has 14 locations. Each location will get you just a little closer to the history and knowledge of Dinosaurs.
Museum of the Rockies has current and rotating exhibits. Currently, (December 2021) here are some of my favorites that are on display: Siebel Dinosaur Complex
, Welcome to Yellowstone Country
, which digs into the history of Montana, Enduring Peoples Exhibit
, highlighting the American Indians of Montana, and the Paugh Exhibit
, illuminating the stories that connect us with the Northern Colorado Rockies. You can see all the exhibits here
to make planning your trip easier.
Museum of the Rockies is an independent 501 Non-Profit here in Bozeman. With that being said, they hold some of the most exquisite benefits throughout the year.
This gives the museum the opportunity to continue to be a highlight for the city of Bozeman. Another way to continue the success of the Museum of the Rockies is to become a member.
