Who We Are

Museum of the Rockies employees
The Museum of the Rockies (MOR) is a world-class museum located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains in Bozeman, Montana. Known for its vast collection of dinosaur fossils, the Museum houses some of the most famous dinosaur specimens in the world including Tyrannosaurus rex and Triceratops.

MOR features permanent exhibits on dinosaurs, regional and American Indian history, as well as changing exhibits that focus on “bringing the world to Bozeman.” A planetarium features shows on the night sky, and a living history farm on the Museum grounds is home to magnificent Heirloom Gardens. In 2010, the new Explore Yellowstone: Children's Discovery Center opened as a permanent exhibit designed for children up to 8 years old.

The Museum of the Rockies is both a college-level division of Montana State University and an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit institution. Accredited by the American Alliance of Museums, MOR is one of just 775 museums to hold this distinction from the more than 17,500 museums nationwide. The Museum is a Smithsonian Affiliate and a Federal Repository for fossils.
