Housed in a contemporary building at Montana State University, this research museum is a federal repository for dinosaur fossils. Its focus is reflected in the names of the exhibition rooms in the Siebel Hall Dinosaur Complex: Hall of Giants, Hallway of Growth and Behavior, and Hall of Horns and Teeth. Another clue is the “statue” out front: a 38-foot-long cast of a Tyrannosaurus rex known as Big Mike, whose fossilized original is on view.

The Martin Discovery Room for Children affords youngsters up to age 8 the opportunity to learn about paleontology through interactive exhibits, while the Taylor Planetarium whisks museum-goers back in time with in-house productions, such as The Dinosaur Chronicles and—beyond the paleontological realm—Lewis & Clark and the High Frontier.

Open daily. Admission charged.
