Large outdoor museum

Most of the museum is outdoors. Many old buildings that have been relocated to this site. Lots of history here. Definitely worth a stop.

This museum is close to I 90. Wonderful presentation inside. Very good signage. The young man at the desk was not very helpful. Passing time as it was his last day. We met an elderly gentleman that was a pleasure to visit with. Born and raised in Hardin so he can tell you anything you want to know.There are numerous... More

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

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
