Where are we going today?

Imagine what it was like walking the earth all those millions of years ago when dinosaurs roamed the lands....you would feel so small!  You could watch in wonder as you studied their slow, sluggish gait, or watch in awe as you see how quick footed they could be.

It almost feels surreal to imagine how different our planet was, but they did exist, and we know that from all the bones that have been found - and this is what you will experience at the Glendive Dinosaur and Fossil Museum.

The aim of the museum is to challenge every visitor to think about the humanistic context of evolution.  They carry this out through fossil digs at Glendive, where the excavation of fossils is done in the Biblical context of the flood of Noah's Day. 

The museum presents the "Truth of Gods Word" using the latest dinosaur bones, as well as paleontological, geological, archaeological an scientific discoveries.

Ever stood next to a full size dinosaur skeleton?  When you get to the museum, stand there, and take your time taking in the sheer size of the creatures.  What sounds do you think they would have made?  What color would their skin have been?  Some of the models have been colored in the ways the scientists and archaeologists thing they would have looked like. 

If you want to go out on a dig, you can dig for a day! Form 8am - 3:30pm you can get out and enjoy a small sized group dig.  You never know what you will find!  Perhaps a new species!

    I never expected such a first-class museum in a small town, but there it is! Having extensively toured U.S. museums and many from Asia to New Zealand, the Glendive Dinosaur Museum is a beauty and filled with the kinds of scientific observations that many overlook! The Hell Creek Formation in Montana has yielded up so many soft tissue dinosaurs, and so our group really enjoyed the fossil digging expedition that the museum arranged for us! (A friend on a separate expedition dug up a triceratops horn and that report of dino soft tissue is now published...Read More

    Go in and throw out your respect for integrity in the Scientific process! . . .or go in and become agonizingly, tormentuously frustrated. We just visited the "Museum" on May 24th, 2013. The facility does have some interesting real content: bones, artifacts, replicas, (and large fakey, plasticy stuff : ( )...BUT the rest is a desperate attempt to convince the untrained mind with desperate ad hoc theories that support the creationist interpretations of the bible. The staff is there to walk you through their viewpoint and are defensive (and sometimes...Read More

    I loved this museum. It's amazingly beautiful and the exhibits are so well done. You can't tell from the outside how cool it is inside. They tell you before you pay that this museum basis it's understanding of facts from the Bible. I don't study sience but I have had many questions on Creation vs. Evolution. As evolution has been poured in my brain for 32 years by school and media it is refreshing to learn the truth of creation through evidence. The coolest thing I learned there was about fossil layers. They have an awesome exhibit that shows how...Read More

    I really expected to see more of the actual bones not replicas. It was a nice museum. The over all experience was not good you people hovering over you the whole time trying to shove the religious views down your throat . They are a religious based museum. Scientists are wrong there wright so they tell you the second u get through the door. It ruined the fun.

    Fantastic world class museum in eastern Montana where dinos are dug up. The museum has great displays and real dinosaurs bones. It also has impressive cast displays of many different dinosaurs. The acrocanthosaurus and the T-rex are fantastic. All this is presented in a biblical creation viewpoint. The museum does a great job in showing how evolution is false. When I went to school I was indoctrinated in evolution in public schools. A museum like this is a very needed breath of fresh air. The seven dollar admission is very affordable. I definitely...Read More

(A friend on a separate expedition dug up a triceratops horn and that report of dino soft tissue is now published in the journal Acta Histochemica.) Transparent and flexible dinosaur blood vessels, sequenced proteins, and now, even DNA from a hadrosaur and a T. rex! The Glendive Museum is in the middle of the action! A fabulous family stop and fun for the kids.

The facility does have some interesting real content: bones, artifacts, replicas, (and large fakey, plasticy stuff : ( )...BUT the rest is a desperate attempt to convince the untrained mind with desperate ad hoc theories that support the creationist interpretations of the bible. The staff is there to walk you through their viewpoint and are defensive (and sometimes aggressive) if you challenge their thought process. The "evidence" is labelled in must believe terms that reflect very little humility for the great responsibility in interpreting evidence and findings. Bottom line...if you don't believe God did it; you're the likes of a ..."zealous evolutionist." All positive feedback is superficial and has no connection to disciplined, rigorous and founded understanding and thinking...everything that this "Museum" is not. Below it all is the suggestion that God is weirdly involved in pulling off miracle after miracle that defies science so, for example, Noah's Ark can ferry ALL of the world's animals -including all the dinosaurs (which walk to the ark from all continents), which somehow overcome specialized diets (koala, carnivores...), hibernating and defecating for a year THEN getting off the ark and undergoing massive speciation for 4000 years to become what they are today. So, God cares about supporting massive science defying acts in Noah's ark but doesn't lift a finger to address the massive agonies of humanity ("true" christians included) today. Blech. This is insulting and manipulative to adults, abusive to the minds of children.

As evolution has been poured in my brain for 32 years by school and media it is refreshing to learn the truth of creation through evidence. The coolest thing I learned there was about fossil layers. They have an awesome exhibit that shows how the flood of Noah's day explains the fossil layers so simply and logically. There's a phrase about the simplest answer usually being the right one. Evolution has never made sense to me but creation, intelligent design the world flood makes so much more sense. The museum provided knowledge for me, who believes in creation and would like a better understanding to combat what I've been taught for so long. I was there for a few hours but there is so much more to see. They have knee high exhibits for the kids that I'd like to explore the next time we go. The dinosaur bones are awesome and I hope I to go on one of their summer digging tours. Would definetly recommend.
