Museum of the Rockies (MOR) is Montana’s most visited museum. In 2019, the museum received over 220,000 general visitors and served an additional 87,000 visitors through school, youth, and public programs. During COVID, the museum has remained active and open except for a 2.5-month period in the spring of 2020. Despite understandable capacity and safety limitations, MOR has been able to serve the visiting public and significantly expand its virtual programs. MOR is a college-level division of Montana State University, an independent 501(c)(3) organization, a Smithsonian Affiliate, an accredited AAM museum, and a repository for state and federal fossils. The interdisciplinary museum has one of the finest collections of paleontology in the world and a significant cultural collection from the Northern Rocky region. Located on a 22-acre museum site, it includes a 120,000-square-foot-facility, state-of-the-art Taylor Planetarium, the 220 seat Hager Auditorium, Martin Children’s Discovery Center, and Living History Farm, along with an off-site 553-acre paleontology preserve.
