Museum of the Rockies

Travel back in time 80 million years and see life in a dinosaur nesting colony. Explore a blacksmith’s shop, try out a saddle, peer inside an authentic Native American tipi. Experience homestead life in the Tinsley House. Daily programs at the Taylor Planetarium bring the stars, galaxies, and heavens down to earth before your very eyes. The Martin Discovery Room is a great place for children (pre-school to age 8) to learn to play. Be a time traveler at the Museum of the Rockies, located at the southeast corner of the campus.
