Digging into Dinosaurs with Museum of the Rockies
Do you DIG dinosaurs? Join Museum of the Rockies for a three-part series all about PALEONTOLOGY!

In this virtual series, you will learn about Montana’s dinosaurs and geology, take a virtual guided tour of the Hall of Horns and Teeth, and ask questions to their paleontologists. Attend all three programs and receive a Junior Paleontologist certificate, signed by our John R. Horner Curator of Paleontology, Dr. John Scannella!
