Eastern Montana 200 million years ago was a swampy, wet place populated by seashore jungles, swamps, and dinosaurs. Today the badlands and breaks of the region are the nation's paleontological hot spots. Many of the best dinosaur fossils have been taken to New York's Museum of Natural History and the Smithsonian, but you can see original inhabitants of the region at dust-country museums and state-of-the-art interpretive centers across eastern Montana. The Dinosaur Trail includes 15 stops, from Jack Horner's collection at the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman to a field station at Fort Peck. A free brochure is available by calling the toll-free number for the Montana Office of Tourism or by visiting the Dinosaur Trail Web site.
