Visited the Museum on a raining cold day to kill time. Pleasantly surprised. The history was laid out very effectively. Loved the dinosaurs room.

This is a beautiful, new, well appointed facility located on a college campus. Lots of great information on dinosaurs. Lots of donations from nearby land owners. There's also good info on native Americans and the early American historical development issues. The place has a planetarium.

I've been here so many times and it never disappoints! It should be a must stop if you're in Bozeman!

The dinosaur exhibits are more impressive than what I have seen in bigger places, and we really liked the Planetarium, where we watched several of the shows. However, strangely the combination or both, the dinosaur animation in the planetarium, looked quite amateurish. In contrast, the...More

It depends on how much the kids are into dinosaurs and the timing of the planetarium show. If it is the 'right' show the 4&6 year old might enjoy it so check the schedule and that will I think determine it. 1-2 hours
