Museum of the Rockies
Montana is known for its outdoor activities but the Museum of the Rockies is the place for those who want to keep it low key. This Smithsonian-affiliated museum is focused on the natural and human history of Montana and the Rockies. The Tinsley House is a living history museum where visitors can see how frontier people in the late 1800s lived. Children can try on clothes and play with toys of the period. Other displays include a paleontology and a curatorial center which houses a collection of archaeological, Native American, and photographic artifacts.
