Museum of the Rockies Pt 2, the Non-Dinosaur History

Although it’s the dinosaurs that everyone comes to the Museum of the Rockies to see, there’s a lot more to see at the museum. Here are some photos from the non-paleontology part of the museum. (There is a large section of Native American history at the museum, but alas photography was not permitted in that section.)
