Several well known works were located on the second floor above the entry way over Easter Weekend. We enjoyed our time there.

“Excellent Museum Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

If anyone thinks of Missoula as a "cow town" you are thinking of the rest of Montana; this town is full of art and music 7 days a week. The MAM is the coolest building, with progressive and challenging exhibits; the staff was accessible and passionate about the work

“Beautiful building as well as interesting art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Didn't expect to find something of this quality in a relatively small town. Not a large place but well worth a visit.

“Not bad for a small town”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

I was pleased that it wasn't filled with western art, but not blown away. It is a nice little museum and you can tell they are trying very hard. It's in an awkward building but with doing at if you are already downtown with time to kill.
