Where are we going today?

Dinosaurs are fascinating creatures! These great beasts that roamed the earth millions of years ago (not to mention they were HUGE!) have captured the attention of many. Makoshika Dinosaur Museum is in the heart of dinosaur country - of course being Montana - where some of the most incredible skeletons and fossils have been found.

Kids can wander round the museum and check out the very cool displays the museum has, with fossils, fossil casts, sculptures and skeletons on display. There is even at 38ft T-Rex! Grrrrr!

Have a look at the sculptures as you walk around. It's great for kids to use their imagination and think what they think the dinosaurs might have looked like. Maybe they were very colorful and furry!

Featuring all three dinosaur periods (the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous), the Makoshika Dinosaur Museum is all about the dinosaurs and fossils. 

Want to know something even cooler? The museum have real dinosaur eggs! Which means, if they are unhatched, there could be a real dinosaur right inside it! What do you think the dinosaur might have looked like?

If that's not enough, they have triceratops, living fossils, as well as plant and marine fossils (yep - it's not just dinosaurs that create fossils!)

Montana might be dino central, but don’t forget they covered the entire world! So Makoshika Dinosaur Museum features these incredible creatures from all countries. 

Don’t forget your camera too! What a great picture to have with T-Rex - don’t forget to say “cheese!”
