The YAM's current exhibitions, Face to Face, Wall to Wall and Unconscious Bent are world class! If you have not had the opportunity to view these shows, you truly are missing out...the one and only contemporary art museum in the region offers some of the best art in the area!

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