Anyway, this is a very nice museum with even big vehicle parking! Yea! There is a planetarium with shows almost every hour, a plains Indian museum, and a Montana history section here.
Here is where a bunch of dinosaurs got stuck in the mud! Literally, only their legs are shown here. And the legs are mostly from younger animals. So a herd of animals got stuck, the adults were able to escape, but the juveniles died and the rest of the bodies were eaten and dragged away by predators, leaving all these vertical leg and foot bones.
One interesting thing they do for display, is to show the skeleton on one side and the animal as it would have looked with flesh on it on the other. Sort of a cutaway animal.
And here are skulls of the same species from a baby to an adult in the far back. Notice that the baby has more rounded features. We would call that "cute."
And an adult and juvenile T-Rex.
They have painted these models of dinosaurs to show how they might have been colored. There are two smaller predators attacking this big plant-eater.
And some more photos of the museum.
Look at these teeth!
I saw two shows in the planetarium--one on the Northern Lights and the other on the current night sky in Montana. It is a large and very comfortable room with seats that are tilted back so you could see the ceiling comfortably. Nice place for a nap, frankly, after walking around the exhibits.
