  • We love MOR and visit a few times per month! My 4 year old son loves all of the events, planetarium and children's museum. Mind- Benders is awesome too!  more »
  • There was something for everyone. Even "dinosaur bones" on the outside. Entry showed a variety of plants. Off to one side were old homes and orchard  more »

  • This place has always been a highlight of my trips to MT. The staff are always friendly and the dinosaur exhibit is state of the art, much better than the Smithsonian or the Museum of Natural History in Chicago. I cannot believe how many fossils they have on display. The full Tyrannosaurus skeleton was breathtaking. All of the panels describing the artifacts and dioramas are informative and interesting. Even with a lot of kids running around the Museum was a treat.
  • One of my favorite pass times is going to the museum. They have some rather breath-taking exhibits. The facility is well marked and clean. Not to mention the planetarium has some great showings! Would recommend for anyone in the area, whether you're a resident or just visiting.
