Want to see one of the world's largest dinosaur collections right in front of your eyes? Yes? We don't blame you!
In that case...let us introduce you to the Museum of the Rockies! This amazing museum in Bozeman is a great place to spend the day with the family. It's part of Montana State University (kids - you can start thinking ahead to when you attend university!) and has fascinating exhibits covering a range of topics - from Western history to American Indians.
The Liberty on the Border exhibit explore that iconic Civil War, and kids gives an insight into the lead up to the war, and why it happened as well as what happened.
You're in Montana - so there has to be an exhibit on regional history! There is an amazing collection that covers stories of lives that walked the same streets as you, but years before! From WWII, to gold seekers and settlers - it's amazing to think how many stories could be told from even one town!
Kids must take time to enjoy the Discovery Center too! Great for kids up to 8 years old, it's based on the amazing Yellowstone Park which gives them another introduction into another amazing part of the state. It's FILLED with hands-on fun, with interactive tools to help teach them all about science and the earth - from geysers to minerals.
