Membership in the Great Plains Dinosaur Museum

The fossils of Montana’s prehistoric life are found in the sandy layers of the badlands of northern and eastern Montana. Many are found within 50 miles of Malta. For over 100 years the fossils of Montana have been taken out of the state to museum and private collections around the world. The Great Plains Dinosaur Museum strives to keep locally found fossils in the community. Its mission:

…to curate and prepare paleontological resources for use in educational programs, scientific research and interpretive displays in support of the advancement of knowledge and the benefit of all people.

Not only does the museum display and house some of Montana’s finest fossil and dinosaur discoveries, it also provides unique employment, volunteer, and educational opportunities for adults and children alike.

Operating such a unique museum in a sparsely populated area of Montana is challenging. The Great Plains Dinosaur Museum is operated by a local nonprofit 501(c)3 organization - the Judith River Foundation. The foundation receives no government funding for its operating costs. Instead, it relies solely on funds generated by admissions, gift store sales, programs and memberships to meet its operating costs.
