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!

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.

Great little gallery with a permanent exhibit focused on Montana - Native American art / Glacier National Park / western culture. A few of the mural pieces of the park are quite beautiful. 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
