We enjoyed learning about the artists of Montana. The museum was originally a Carnegie Library. The woman at the admissions desk was very enthusiastic and proud of the museum and Kalispell area. Interesting exhibits and enticing gift shop!

The main exhibits change several times per year. We were fortunate to see a lovely exhibit of western art from a private collection. Spend some time here. It's worth it.

30-45 minutes of self-directed art examination. Indian art and traditional Glacier scene paintings. Well worth the entrance fee.

The Hockaday Museum is a jewelbox for the display of NW artists. It is not a large museum so people expecting an equivalent experience to a large city museum may be disappointed.
