The Guitar exhibit was very interesting. The other exhibits were not bad - it is worth a couple of hour stay.

Go to the museum often. Besides the huge dinosaur collection we visit the planetarium and in the summer the outdoor farm exhibit. It also offers school programs. We're lucky to have such a place in Bozeman, MT.

The museum has a strong emphasis on Montana and the region. There is the living history farm open in summer hours and it's free. If there is a dinosaur fan in your clan this is a must stop. Lots of great displays and interactive features...More

Response from Christopher S | Reviewed this property |
It depends on how much the kids are into dinosaurs and the timing of the planetarium show. If it is the 'right' show the 4&6 year old might enjoy it so check the schedule and that will I think determine it. 1-2 hours
