We took our teenager to the museum and loved the New Roman Villa! It was so cool and educational! Thanks for a fun, family friendly day!

What an amazing place. I have been to museums before but nothing like this. There is so much to see. We spent over 2 hour looking at everything and seeing the show in the planetarium about the lost city of Atlantis. Just awesome.

Museum of the Rockies is awesome! There's lots of dinosaurs and history of the old west as well as a fun kids area all about Yellowstone park! The main exhibit hall changes every 6-12 months so there is always something new and interesting! Admission is good for 2 days so take your time, take in a show at the planetarium,... More

The dinosour fossil collection in this Museum is world class, clearly the highlight. An enormously impressive collection of T-Rex and Triceratops skulls, including the famous recent "B Rex" discovery of tissue and blood cells in a female T-Rex.

The dinosaur skeletal remains are very impressive we really enjoyed them and the grand scale of which they are on display. Aside from that the rest of the museum was kind of blah except for the planetarium was pretty neat. Worth a stop even though the price was pretty steep of over 20 something a person.
