- Museum of the Rockies - view map
After spending 33 years in the field with Museum of the Rockies and Montana State University, Dr. Jack Horner, MOR’s own Curator of Paleontology and scientific advisor on all of the Jurassic Park films, will be retiring. But before he leaves, we’re going to celebrate the man, his research, and his lifetime of discoveries with a party to thank him for all he’s done for MOR, our community and Montana. You’ll see the MOR paleontology heavy duty trucks and vehicles up close, meet members of Jack’s field crews, participate in hands-on activities that highlight his most famous discoveries, and you’ll be able to speak with Jack in person. Please join us in a special tribute to one of the world’s greatest scientists, Dr. Jack Horner.
Since 1982, Jack Horner has expanded the Museum’s three-specimen collection to an internationally recognized, scientifically significant collection of over 35,000 fossils. Along the way, he built the largest paleontology field program in the United States. From all of us at MOR, Thank you, Jack. We wish you well in your next adventure!
