Montana is a HAVEN for dinosaurs, so what better place to experience exactly what incredibly things have been uncovered than at Great Plains Dinosaur Museum!?
Some of the most complete dinosaur fossils ever discovered were found in Montana – some even with stomach contents, tendons and fossilized skin! What do you think THAT would feel like to touch!
The Great Plains Dinosaur Museum have a number of vertebrate fossil animals on display, including triceratops, and the stegosaur! Just image with their size what they would have been like roaming this earth!
What do you think Montana would have looked like back in the Cretaceous period? Can you image ever having high water levels caused flooding in the Midwest? Well – it was! There was a patch of water that actually split the states in half!
That also explains why marine animals fossils are found in these parts! Lobsters, crabs, and cephalopods (they are like octopus!) have all been found. They have even discovered three new species – how awesome is that!?
Kids who just LOVE all things prehistoric, natural history and fossils, the Great Plains Dinosaur Museum offer Junior Palaeontology Programs just for them! There is the Junior Paleo Lab Program, which gets kids learning about basic geology, and how a fossil is formed. A fascinating 90 minute program!
Or for those outdoor loving kids they can undertake a 3 hour programs on basic discovery and excavation with the field experience – an incredible opportunity!
