Nicely-done space on one floor with changing exhibits, most of which were interesting if not spectacular. Two rooms had ceramic art from several modern artists, including five second-year interns. A half-hour is sufficient but you will be somewhat stimulated.

This little museum does a terrific job presenting interesting works of art in an inventive and pleasing manner. I attended one exhibit on quilts a few months ago and most recently, a collection of sculptures by the senior fellows at the Archie Bray Foundation. Truly memorable. Terrific gift shop I might add!

Always has a great selection of quality pieces. I have never been disappointed. It is free with donations accepted. Often gets remarkable displays of unique and original art.

If you find "art museums" intimidating, give the Holter a try. It is small enough to visit in an hour or two, comfortable and welcoming, with a friendly staff that really seems to care if you had a good stay. On a recent visit, there was a display of ceramic arts from the well known area institution, the Archie Bray,... More

If you would like to see some high-quality art in a restful setting, pay the Holter a visit. In early June, there was a wonderful exhibit of local ceramic artists from the Archie Bray Foundation, but there were paintings and sculptures to delight the eye and the soul. Good gift store, and a pleasant welcome from the receptionist on duty.... More

You bet, and well worth the time to visit. The Museum has a permanent collection, but also has some excellent traveling exhibitions - a couple of years ago they featured some photographs by Ansel Adams. A real Helena highlight

Given the small size of our city, this museum is very good. When we visited, the Holder was hosting a showing of Ansel Adams photos, plus modern works by Native American artists and an exhibit relating to Montana's natural beauty. The facility itself is up to date and well kept. Parking is easy (frankly, we just walk over from our... More

This is a small art museum that displays modern art. Not a bad place to spend an hour or less if you like modern art. There is a suggested donation of $8 per adult, but this museum is not worth that much.

The Holter is a really nice art museum, with a bright, welcoming atmosphere. Admission is by voluntary contribution. There is local art available for purchase in the shop and the galleries had some appealing exhibitions when we were there. Right downtown and worth a look.
