For our single night stay in Bozeman, we utilized the Walmart parking lot. Of course it wasn't free with even a second trip inside to buy the things I forgot the first time. We did have a nice view, though.
We looked in the AAA book and found the Museum of the Rockies which was listed as a 'gem' attraction.
On the grounds, is the Living History Farm including a 1890's original homestead house with interpreters dressed in period costumes.
I don't have many pictures, but the museum had extensive exhibits on a variety of topics. Dinosaurs are not among my favorite things, but the collection was impressive.
We attended the planetarium show, enjoyed the children's discovery center (where you could cause a volcano to blow), and zoomed through the regional history hall (which contained lots of old stuff).
They also have quite a space exhibit. My favorite thing was a heat sensing camera which displayed our various levels of body heat on a screen. I can't believe I didn't take a picture because I was fascinated. My highest level of heat seemed to be in my head, while Ron's seemed a bit lower in his upper chest. What does that say?
When we left Bozeman, we continued west on I 90 to exit 274 where we found something no self respecting RVer could pass up, at least judging by the number of rigs in the parking lot.
Ron bought a couple of his favorite bear claws which were okay, but look at the size of my sticky bun! And boy was it good!!!
