The other exhibit has a picture created entirely of spools of thread, must be seen to appreciate. Upstairs also look tor the young man carrying his father and the security officer.

Mediocre at best, trying to bring "culture" to Billings. There are infinitely more interesting and quality museums in the country.

Manageable, well appointed art museum. Lots of Western Art as you might expect. Historical exhibits are great. Fine small snack bar and restaurant.

A large, attractive museum with new exhibits every 2-3 months. Their best exhibits are usually the regional artists, in my opinion. The focus is modern art but there is a permanent Will James exhibit.

I've gone here for most of my adult life, and love the variety of art work they display. I'm sad that they closed the gift shop during the recession and apparently don't plan to re-open it. But the level of art featured, including original Monets, always thrills me. Not just a local western art museum, for sure.

Did not expect this in Billings, but it was a fine experience. Added a different look at the area. Some of the art was a little different and it was called different. The people were helpful and friendly.

Great modern art museum and first class / world class facility. Very interesting exhibits and wonderful display space Wasn't sure about the outer building and it was locked when we visited. Along with western heritage center, Peter yegen Yellowstone county log cabin museum and moss mansion great places to visit.
