If you go to almost any state, you'll most likely hear stereotypes about the people that live there.
When I tell people I grew up in Idaho, everybody seems to think I was a potato farmer. Unless you actually live in a state, a lot of the stereotypes are fairly inaccurate. For example, not all Idahoans are potato farmers.
In Montana, everyone thinks Bozeman is full of liberal yuppies, but that's not entirely true. There are a lot of conservatives that live in Bozeman as well.
While most stereotypes aren't entirely accurate, some of them are pretty true.
A Judgemental Map of Montana was shared on Reddit a few years ago that features some hilariously accurate stereotypes about people that live in different parts of the state. Check out the map below.
The map claims that Bozeman is full of nerds and celebrities. Honestly, there are quite a few celebrity sightings in Bozeman. There's also a lot of nerds. Bozeman has been referred to as the Silicon Valley of the North with many people working in the tech industry.
Residents of Butte might not be too happy about living in the "Literal Butthole of Montana", but let's face it, it's kind of accurate. The map also refers to much of eastern Montana as "Not really Montana." Apparently, Kalispell is known for 420 and meth.
The map of hilariously accurate Montana stereotypes was originally shared on Reddit by u/oisasf approximately three years ago, but we only recently discovered it.
Do you think these Montana stereotypes are accurate?

Museum of the Rockies
is nestled right next to Bobcat Stadium in Bozeman. The Museum is part of the American Alliance of Museums
, which means that the Museum of the Rockies is one of the 1,095 museums to hold this distinction. With over 33,000 museums nationwide, this is quite an accomplishment.
The Museum of the Rockies is also part of the Montana Dinosaur Trail
. What is that? It is a trail that runs through the state of Montana and has 14 locations. Each location will get you just a little closer to the history and knowledge of Dinosaurs.
Museum of the Rockies has current and rotating exhibits. Currently, (December 2021) here are some of my favorites that are on display: Siebel Dinosaur Complex
, Welcome to Yellowstone Country
, which digs into the history of Montana, Enduring Peoples Exhibit
, highlighting the American Indians of Montana, and the Paugh Exhibit
, illuminating the stories that connect us with the Northern Colorado Rockies. You can see all the exhibits here

Museum of the Rockies is an independent 501 Non-Profit here in Bozeman. With that being said, they hold some of the most exquisite benefits throughout the year.
This gives the museum the opportunity to continue to be a highlight for the city of Bozeman. Another way to continue the success of the Museum of the Rockies is to become a member.
