The Custer County Art & Heritage Center has undergone a name change to the Waterworks Art Museum. The current exhibit - By Design: Wax, Woods & Welds is exciting. Stop in Miles City - spend a few Air-Conditioned hours strolling at your leisure through this exhibit - or spend the night in Miles City and spend even longer admiring the... More

The Miles City residents are good at re-purposing their buildings. The Custer County Art Center found a very nice home in the old city water works building, not far from the Ranger Riders Museum. I was pleasantly surprised at the artwork by Montana and northwestern artists. There was a nice variety of painting and three dimensional creations. I especially enjoys... More

This is an impressive small museum with something for everyone who has any interest in either western art, art created in the west, or early western photography. We were there for the Year of the Horse exhibit, an eclectic display of horse-related art from all over the northern Great Plains and northern Rockies. The curators selected a mix of styles... More

On a Sunday morning, we were the only ones there and they had partially closed one of the exhibit areas to change out an exhibit. However, the Hostess showed us a video about a pioneer woman who became a photographer. Her story was fascinating. Do go there if you pass through.

Unusual setting in the old water plant. The collection of photos by Lady Evelyn Cameron, L. A. Huffman and others was exceptional. Great little gift shop and a wildy diverse collection of Western art from modern acrylics to stunning bronzes (one of which is now ours). Friendly staff and the lovable resident dog - Fritz. Worth a visit and did... More

we liked the film presentation and the friendly and knowledgable people there. The gift shop was a bit pricey but they need the revenue to pay the bills.

This is a nice art museum for eastern Montana. it is not too big, so visits should be less than an hour. Every September they have their art auction. Nice variety from oil and water paintings to sculptures from area artists.
