Exhibitions

Museum of the Rockies brings the world to Montana,
and shares Montana with the world.

The museum brings in three to five changing exhibitions a year to share the world with members and visitors of all ages. Experience the science, art, culture, and history offered in these unique and diverse changing exhibits.

The museum's primary exhibits include Landforms/Lifeforms and Dinosaurs Under The Big Sky in the Siebel Dinosaur Complex, Welcome to Yellowstone Country, Enduring Peoples, and the Paugh History Hall. On the second floor is the Martin Children’s Discovery Center and its exhibit, Explore Yellowstone, specially designed for visitors up to eight years old.

Rusty, the draft horse, is located next to the museum's entrance road near Kagy Blvd. This sculpture is one of Jim Dolan's most recognizable art pieces. It has been a faithful resident at MOR since the early 1980s when the schoolchildren of Bozeman collected recyclable cans raising funds to gift Rusty to the museum.

Big Mike, the impressive life-size Tyrannosaurus rex, welcomes you to the museum. This bronze sculpture was created from a mold of the fossil bones of the Wankel T. rex or MOR 555.

MOR's seasonal outdoor exhibit is the Living History Farm, an 1890s Montana homestead comprised of the Tinsley House and its surrounding gardens, orchard, and fields.
