We loved the museum with its interesting art, especially the various mediums of Val Knight and the wonderful old fable of The Blind Men and the Elephant in drawings by Stephen Gluekert. We spent a lot of time here with our friends before our trolley tour which originated at the Paris Gibson Museum. The one-hour trolley tour was very informational,... More

The outside of the museum is beautiful, but most of the inside is used for storage. This museum displays mostly modern art. The photography section was nice. Admission was free the day I went.

My favorites were Cells and Orbs: Sketchbook Drawings and Related Works by Julia Becker - colorful prints from her sketchbooks. Also the memorial Three-Thousand and Counting about US casualties in the mideast. Art museums are kinda lost on me (I jogged thru The Louvre) but I like this old school building and cruised thru in 10 minutes. The price is... More

Most definitely worth the visit. It's another type of art to love. It's housed in an old high school and it's worth the visit to see the building as well as the great art.

Really great museum housed in an historical landmark (beautiful old school). They have ever-changing exhibits featuring some very interesting modern pieces. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area!

It's really cool to find a serious art museum in the middle of Montana. Definitely worth a visit if you are into art.

I always like to visit the Paris Gibson Museum of Art. My number one reason to visit is the building. I love that they did not allow the beautiful high school building to fall into disrepair and have converted it into a public space for all to enjoy. There were 2 exhibits open the day we visited, but there was... More

I found the building more interesting than the art. The museum is in the original high school for Great Falls. A few interesting peaces but just average overall. The price is right.
