Paleontology


MOR SCIENTIFIC ACCLAIM

The Museum of the Rockies Paleontology Program is recognized around the world for its preeminence in the study of dinosaur growth, behavior, ecology, and evolution. Dr. John Scannella is the John R. Horner Curator of Paleontology.

Fossil collection at MOR began in the early 1980s and now encompasses some thirty-five thousand specimens, including the world’s largest collection of Tyrannosaurus and Triceratops, along with America’s largest collection of dinosaur eggs, embryos, and babies.

Researchers from every corner of the globe come to Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, Montana, to study these remarkable and unique specimens.  The public dinosaur halls display our extraordinary collection and modern discoveries, interpreting the most recent research, published by Montana State University students and staff.
