Autumn in the Bozeman area is one of the best times of the year! There is so much to do – and we’re excited by the growing list of things to enjoy this season. We’ve included some of our favorites in the list below.
#5 – As the temperatures get a bit chillier at the end of fall, go explore a local museum! Bozeman has so many different museum options.
The world-renowned Museum of the Rockies is located on the south side of town, right next to Montana State University. They have an amazing collection of dinosaur fossils and great history on Yellowstone Country. Check out the massive Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton in the Hall of Giants – you won’t be disappointed!
The American Computer and Robotics Museum is located near MSU campus on Stadium Drive. This museum showcases the history of communications, computing and artificial intelligence through 4,000 years of human history. They recently acquired a group of vintage Macintosh computers showcased in their new ‘Vintage Mac Museum Exhibit.’ https://acrmuseum.org/
The Montana Science Center is located across from the Gallatin Valley Mall and is a great museum for all ages! There are multiple exhibits to enjoy including ‘Planes, Trains & Automobiles,’ craft tables, a bubble wall and even a 110-gallon aquarium! https://montanasciencecenter.org/
