This can be either a pleasant 20-60 minute stop or an all day activity with both indoor and outdoor aspects. Yes, many small towns have collections of what the old-timers in the area have donated and I've been to quite a few around the country but this one is fairly professionally organized/curated by knowledgable local residents. The museum facility itself... More

I grew up in Hardin Montana in the 1960s and left in 1973. It was a bustling little town with the county courthouse, rancher/farmer populations shopping its downtown and old U. S. highway running through the middle of town. In the 1970s a new freeway was built circumventing the town and the future of the town was in question. The... More

Large collection of historical buildings and vehicles from around the area. Also has an indoor museum with additional exhibits. Learned a lot about the history of the area. Woman at the ticket counter was very helpful to us, as well as others who came in, to get additional info on sights in the surrounding area. Take the time to stop... More

Brand new building ! Nice place to learn history of the west. There were several "out buildings" on the property which added to the experience. Would recommend checking it out !

We visited this Museum in late August or early September and I was truly impressed. The main building ranks very high in my book. The quality of the building and its contents were first class and nicely displayed. The outside exhibits were many and varied---the farm equipment. The outside buildings looked great , but only had time to go through... More

Both the new building exhibits, plus all the outdoor section with actual historical buildings like the "Fly Inn" Gas Station, the work Camp 4 from the harvesters, a Church, School, Slaughter house and so much more. Old cars, fire engines, farm equipment, old wagons. We thought initially we would have been done in about an hour or so. Truth is... More

We thought we would be through this in a half hour and boy were we wrong! Inside their beautiful new building they used reclaimed items (doors, an outstanding old bar,cabinets, tin ceiling, a huge jail door and the list goes on). More importantly, you will find the most amazing collection of pictures taken of local Native Americans. What makes this... More
