I was in Missoula with two of my friends for the day. The day was coming towards an end but we didn't want to quite head back home to Kalispell yet, so we decided to make a stop here. This museum was well worth the stop. The inside museum provides a great history lesson on Missoula. I didn't know all... More

While on business (I work at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan), I made a stop at Fort Missoula. I love all art, but can appreciate the educational outlet that historical museums create. The first thing I noticed in the museum was the disgusting "orientation room." Carpet in a museum is not a good look unless it is regularly... More

This museum is located on the grounds of a former military base within one of the original buildings. The theme of the displays is centered on the military history of the fort and the surrounding area, which dates back to Lewis and Clark up through a time when foreign nationals occupied a detainment camp here during WWII. Displays are mostly... More

We didn't see that much but what we saw was nice and the grounds was well maintained. They have bathrooms and it is a very nice place to walk or run in. Good for kids too.

This was a last minute decision to go to this museum. We are glad we did. The exhibits were well done and there was quite a bit of information that was available for us to learn more about the history of this area.

There's alot to see at Fort Missoula. From the museum, school, fire watch tower and many others to list. There is a small charge to get into the museum but well worth it. The displays are always changing which keeps it interesting. One display was a telegraph machine were you could learn how to type a message. Fort Missoula is... More

We enjoyed our visit. We learned a lot about Missoula that we did not know even though we had previously lived in the area. It was very well presented and very enjoyable.

Good background on the history of the area - makes driving around the area more interesting. Historical markers on the roadside fit into this context. It was very hot, or we would have spent more time exploring the grounds.
