Dinosaur Country

Montana is a paradise for dinosaur enthusiasts. Its sparse population and rugged landscapes have allowed for exceptional preservation and excavation of animals long extinct. Near Jordan, the world’s first Tyrannosaurus rex was identified. At Malta rests “the world’s best-preserved dinosaur” (as described by the Guinness Book of World Records). And just outside Choteau, Maiasaura nesting sites were uncovered—one of the most important discoveries in the history of paleontology.

 

The Montana Dinosaur Trail celebrates our state’s richness of paleontological treasures, with fourteen museums across twelve communities. Each destination offers something unique in its dinosaur exhibits, while the journey itself provides Trail visitors plenty of opportunities to shop, stay, and play in Montana.

 

This issue of Treasure State Lifestyles highlights the significance of the Montana Dinosaur Trail and its contributions to both science and local tourism. Come with us as we travel 2,000 miles across Montana and 150 million years across time. You’ll see why Montana isn’t just a state for dinosaur discoveries; it is arguably the state.

        The world these days is a fast-paced place. As such, businesses are hard-pressed to find consumers willing to slow down long enough to hear what they have to say.
