The two properties are walking distance from each other. The Hockaday Art Museum currently has breathtaking Montana landscapes by Oberlin, as well as permanent exhibits that are... More

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.

The rotating exhibits are also interesting. Many of the pieces in the rotating exhibit are available for purchase. Worth a stop to see the art even if... More
