Here Are 5 Museums In Montana That Are Just Too Weird For Words
Montana is home to some pretty impressive museums, like the notable Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman. But sometimes it’s fun to explore the quirky, offbeat museums in our state that feature collections you won’t find anywhere else. These are five of our oddest.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
1. American Computer & Robotics Museum, 2023 Stadium Dr #1A, Bozeman
This specialty museum is a must-see for anyone interested in the history of all things computer. They're open from 10-4 daily, and admission is free, although donations are accepted.
2. Legacy Doll Museum, 3206 6th Ave N., Billings
This Billings museum promotes doll preservation and has quite a collection, some of which dates back to the early days of doll-making. While this looks interesting for doll collectors, we probably wouldn't want to be left alone inside after dark.
3. Glendive Dinosaur & Fossil Museum, 139 State St.
This is no ordinary dinosaur museum. Based on the idea that the Bible is a literal interpretation of the world, the displays explain the belief that dinosaurs and humans lived at the same time and dinosaurs were on Noah's Ark.
4. Miracle of America Museum, 36094 Memory Ln., Polson
This museum is quirky in the most wonderful of ways. Here you'll discover everything from the walking-plow to walking on the moon.
5. O'Fallon Historical Museum, 723 S Main St., Baker
The highlight of this Eastern Montana museum is definitely Steer Montana, the world’s largest steer (he weighed 3,980 pounds pounds in life). But there are plenty of other things to see here, all of which tie into the history of Southeast Montana.
Weird or not, we’re happy to have so many fascinating museums in Montana. Check out our
