Off-Campus Exhibits

Montana Natural History CenterAs the UMZM's primary outreach partner, the Montana Natural History Center hosts dozens of live mounts, including three grizzly brown bears, several mountain goats, two American bison exchanged with the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, and a wide array of small mammals and birds.

Hornaday Bison: Located at Fort Benton, Montana, the famous Hornaday-Smithsonian bison (Bos bison) in this exhibit are well over 100 years old. All six of the original specimens are loaned from the UMZM for display, refurbished but in the same arrangement as in their original Smithsonian showcase. This exhibit is a special tribute the legacy of William T. Hornaday and this iconic species which, with careful management, rebounded from near extinction due to overhunting during the European colonization of western North America.

Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation: Headquartered in Missoula, Montana, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation visitor center displays several of the UMZM's spectacular shoulder mounts of bull elk.

Valley County Pioneer Museum: Located in Glasgow, Montana, the Valley County Pioneer Museum exhibits include a full-body mount of bighorn sheep from the UMZM.
