Tips from locals
Amazing dinosaur bone displays, celestial room, and a new photo or art exhibition every month. Great for families, adults who want to learn about the Arctic or Ghengis Khan or some other unique exhibit. Visit website to see what's current.
Just an hour away in Bozeman. One of the best fossil collections in the west. And they were all found in Montana. Words cannot describe the wonders that await you here. And they have great planetarium shows too!
Museum of the Rockies offers a wide variety of special exhibits & often has traveling exhibits as well. This is a great place to visit for any age!

“With community support, the Emerson Center for the Arts and Culture renovated a historic building; filled it with working artists and musicians; created a popular theater as well as exhibition, retail and rental space; educated thousands of children and adults; and welcomed the community time and again through its doors to gather and share and revel in the arts and culture. Most of all, the Emerson is about people coming together: Children laugh and play at Lunch on the Lawn; artist-tenants open their studios on Art Walk evenings; music or movie lovers take their seats in the Crawford Theater; tiny people twirl in a second-floor dance studio; schoolchildren sit on the floor in the Jessie Wilber Gallery intent on an art project; shoppers cruise Galleria Hall and pause for a meal at the Emerson Grill; students work wheels in the pottery studio; and in a prelude to Bozeman’s Christmas Stroll, a pandemonium of excited children assemble gingerbread houses.”
