Education

Museum of the Rockies is dedicated to engaging all learners, from babies to adults who are young at heart, in explorations of science, history, and art through an array of educational programs.

From our founding in 1957, we have shared the museum’s collections with the public, engaging visitors through special events, programs, and outreach materials. As a community resource and regional museum, MOR’s education team has stimulated learning that encourages curiosity for people of all ages.
