If you live in Bozeman and have yet to stop at the Museum of the Rockies, you are totally missing out. A walk through history, science, and brilliancy is what you can expect.

Every year, the MOR (Museum of the Rockies) will have seasonal exhibits, all of which draw in a large crowd. Those crowds will include veterans of the MOR, and some newbies that will soon become regulars at the museum.

Just announced are two new exhibits to the Museum of the Rockies, which you can see until January 7th, 2024.

Unbridled Spirt: The Photography of Barbara Van Cleve:

Step into the world of an Unbridled Spirit. This exhibition takes you on a journey through the rugged beauty and fading traditions of the American West through the lens of internationally-acclaimed photographer Barbara Van Cleve. View numerous photography themes alongside a carefully curated selection of ranching artifacts from her's and MOR's cultural history collections. She has passionately documented the "true grit" and romantic allure of her ranching experiences in the West. Inducted into the prestigious Cowgirl Hall of Fame, Van Cleve's photography has garnered international acclaim, featuring in over 60 solo exhibitions nationwide and beyond. -MOR


Zoo In You: The Human Microbiome:

Zoo in You invites members and visitors of all ages to explore this fascinating and complex world inside us, that is, our microbiome, a dynamic, adaptable, and delicately balanced ecosystem like any other found in nature.

Explore this vibrant world of our inner microorganisms through engaging, interactive, and bilingual exhibits and programs and discover who our constant microbial

companions are, where they live, how diverse they are, and in what ways scientists are learning just how important they are to our own health. -MOR

Montana's Museum Of The Rockies Is For Everyone! Check It Out

Museum of the Rockies is nestled right next to Bobcat Stadium in Bozeman. The Museum is part of the American Alliance of Museums, which means that the Museum of the Rockies is one of the 1,095 museums to hold this distinction. With over 33,000 museums nationwide, this is quite an accomplishment. 

The Museum of the Rockies is also part of the Montana Dinosaur Trail. What is that? It is a trail that runs through the state of Montana and has 14 locations. Each location will get you just a little closer to the history and knowledge of Dinosaurs.  

Museum of the Rockies has current and rotating exhibits. Currently, (December 2021) here are some of my favorites that are on display: Siebel Dinosaur Complex, Welcome to Yellowstone Country, which digs into the history of Montana, Enduring Peoples Exhibit, highlighting the American Indians of Montana, and the Paugh Exhibit, illuminating the stories that connect us with the Northern Colorado Rockies. You can see all the exhibits here to make planning your trip easier.

Museum of the Rockies is an independent 501 Non-Profit here in Bozeman. With that being said, they hold some of the most exquisite benefits throughout the year. This gives the museum the opportunity to continue to be a highlight for the city of Bozeman. Another way to continue the success of the Museum of the Rockies is to become a member.

If you are considering donating to the Museum of the Rockies, you can check it out here and decide which program works best for you. Help Bozeman keep this amazing learning tool open and available to everyone. Enjoy your time at the Museum of the Rockies.
