Youth and Families

From babies to adults who are young at heart, Museum of the Rockies provides opportunities to explore science, history, culture, and art through exhibits and programming. Awarded Bozeman's Best Place for Kids' Activities and the Best Place for Family Fun, Museum of the Rockies is a leader in programming for children, teens, and families.

Programs for early learners (from birth through preschool) prepare children for their elementary school years by providing a structured environment to engage with science and history, develop literacy skills, learn to follow instructions, and grow creatively. Trained museum educators and volunteers inspire an early love of science, history, and reading by using developmentally appropriate educational techniques.

Children in elementary through middle school are invited to explore all MOR has to offer through a wide range of programs guaranteed to elicit excitement out of any child. At MOR, teens and children can touch real fossils and learn to make inferences based on observations and evidence. Through MOR's popular summer camps, they can construct telescopes, create original exhibits from their toy collections, live as a homesteader in the 1890s for a week, discover engineering through bicycles, and more. Whether the program lasts for one hour or one summer, MOR can inspire a sense of wonder through real objects and experts in the field.

While some programs are just for the kids, many of MOR's activities are designed to engage the entire family! Drop-in family programs and events feature explosions, experiments, and even occasional live creatures. We have so much fun at MOR that even those young at heart enjoy our family programs!
