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

Housed in the old Carnegie Library building near downtown Kalispell, the renovated accessible building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The museum features permanent and rotating exhibitions, and also offers programs for children. The gift shop features local and regional artists.

My visit date is immaterial. Like the Conrad Mansion, a look into Kalispell's and the area's past. Haven't been there for some time, but again, if you have time to spare before/after visiting Glacier Nat'l Park, check it out. Broaden your vision of what this country is in all aspects.

Bad weather in Glacier National Park? No problem. This beautiful little art museum (plus the Central School Historical Society and Museum) are worth at least half a day of your time in Kalispell. 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

For a small gallery , it had something for everyone. Displaying and promoting Local Artists , Recent display was Nicholas Oberling , wich was excellent. My favorite local artist always has been Mark Ogle.

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!
