Great museum, great exhibits, very interesting and love the building. big city type museum ! aaaaaaaaaaaa
This museum covers some history of the Billings area. The exhibits are all downstairs. The museum is not big, but the displays they do have are nice. Indians, firearms. and even a taxidermied two-headed calf. If you have an hour, you should stop by.
I went with my parents and children (10 and 8), so I go to tour it alone and could spend the time needed to read all the information. The exhibits were very informative. My father went through with the children and had to explain a lot to them, otherwise they would not have gotten a lot out of it.
We liked seeing the range rider statue and some of the other things on display there. The young lady at the desk was also helpful with info regarding Billings in general. Small, but appropriate, gift shop. Free, but donations are accepted.

Just walked around and took in the exhibits...very good. It is close to the downtown area so just a nice walk to see some historic memorabilla and get more information of the Yellowstone Valley.
This museum is well worth your time if you're visiting Billings, especially if you're flying. It's free, and packed with history about the county and Montana. The J. Brock Lee art exhibit captures the spirit of the state, with vivid western paintings. Their permanent collection chronicles both Native American and Anglo history in the county, with stories, a lot of... More
I just find this a rather sorry, sad little museum. There aren't that many items and it has to compete with the really fine Western Heritage Museum. And the location is very odd and not that easily reached.
