The Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman is home to a world famous collection of dinosaur fossils and paleontology program. Dinosaur fossils are found in Montana rocks from the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. Dinosaur dig crew led by paleontologist and curator Jack Horner, science advisor to the Jurassic Park films, excavate fossils which are prepared and studied at the Museum in Bozeman. Some of the most famous dinosaurs in the world such as Tyrannosaurus rex, Triceratops, and Deinonychus can be seen on display.
You'll also have an opportunity to experience the award-winning changing exhibit, Survivor: Jamestown, where turning one corner in the maze can mean the difference between life or death. This interactive, immersive, and educational maze experience is set in the original 1607 Jamestown, Virginia colony. Presenting a glimpse into the struggles of the New World settlers, this exhibit engages visitors in a quest to survive the conditions that only 38 of the original 104 colonists were able to endure for one year. Melding historical accuracy and the complexities of real life and death decisions, Survivor: Jamestown delivers a truly unique and effective learning experience.
