In 1957, the Museum of the Rockies was founded as a part of Montana State University to begin the study and interpretation of this extraordinary region. The museum has acquired broad-based collections which are used for research, publication, exhibition and teaching.
Yellowstone National Park
Established in 1872, Yellowstone National Park is America's first national park. Located in Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho, it is home to a large variety of wildlife including grizzly bears, wolves, bison, and elk. Preserved within Yellowstone National Park are Old Faithful, the most popular geyser in the world, a collection of the world's most extraordinary geysers and hot springs, and the colorful Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone. The Heritage and Research Center is a state-of-the-art facility that is home to Yellowstone National Park's museum collection, archives, research library, historian, archeology lab, and herbarium.
