There is a space on a lower floor for children to engage... More

Wonderful local museum filled with Northwest & Native American art, but surprisingly so much more. There was a beautiful display of local artists, whose creativity amazed us. Such talent. All art was very well displayed and the museum staff was friendly and very informative. They also had a traveling display of quilts that was extraordinary. Not to be missed.

This is a charming art museum made all the more interesting because it exists in an historic Carnegie Library building - the ultimate in reusing. The museum contains a combination of traveling exhibits, work by local artists and its permanent collection of regional art. We found everyone to be very friendly, enthusiastic and welcoming. There were two presentations going on... More

Hockaday Museum of Art eclectic collections are for the person who likes western art, the person who is interested in Native American art, those who love landscapes (especially mountains), and those whose tastes tend toward local artists. You won't be bored here.

We spent a couple of hours in this Art Gallery. It displays very good artwork painted in the last 150 years by some very talented people in the area. Well worth the admission charge.

This is a charming museum featuring women artists who have painted Glacier National Park and a permanent collection of art from GNP. The building is architecturally interesting as well.

The Hockaday is devoted (at least now) to Glacier National Park-themed paintings done by women artists. A great and unique art exhibit.

Small gallery but was pleasant. Not a great deal on display. Some nice paintings of Glacier Park. Glad to have one but wouldn't go out of my way to return

Thank John H
