      While these two museums are unconnected (and charge separate entry fees), they're located next door to one another and are both home to impressive collections of dinosaur relics. As a county museum Phillips also focuses the heritage of the region with displays relating to native Americans, pioneers and cowboys, including a bunkhouse, schoolhouse, church and mercantile. The Great Plains Dinosaur Museum is, as its name suggest, dedicated entirely to Montana's largest-ever inhabitants.

      If you go:
      Phillips is open all year round; GPDM is open from April to September.
