Great collection of artifacts, buildings, and memorabilia. Darn shame it is not on I94 because people miss this. But if you want to see Montana, get off the interstate and drive to this place. The host is very knowledgable, the exhibits endless, and as an extra added attraction the lake with a fine picnic area is only three blocks away. So get off the interstate and see the real Montana. (By the way, if you come via route 12 you will also see some interesting homestead ruins.) And PS, it's FREE!

I had no idea what to expect when I decided to make a stop in the museum as I was passing through Baker, Montana. But this place sure knows how to make history interesting! I was convinced after visiting their website where I saw a cute little seven-ish-year-old describe historic cars. That’s when I decided this isn’t your average museum! (And it’s not!) From the world’s largest steer to Lady Liberty herself, the curator did a great job of keeping my tour light, interesting and entertaining! If you’re on the Yellowstone trail, or adding through Baker for any other reason, you won’t be disappointed if you go out of your way to take in a little history here!

I’m not a museum fan. Nothing bores me more than looking at some bored stuff. But this is unique to me. I can’t tell you why but I enjoyed visiting this museum. The curator was personable but not overwhelming. Unlike those who push you to see what they see and embrace the past. She made the visit more appealing.

Not sure who did the murals on the buildings around this museum, but they are well done and add a definite perk to this area. The museum is in several small buildings. Steer Montana was really something to see!

OK, every small town boasts a museum, filled with everyone's "stuff" that they no longer want. As one of those that wanders through and thinks "I remember that!" - I'm an expert in old stuff. The folks in Baker have done an excellent job with their museum. Things are placed together (for example, all cameras in one display) and well-marked with what it is, how it was used and the donor. Nicely done. They have 3 buildings of material and excellent Boy Scout and Girl Scout displays. Plus, of course, the World's Largest Steer - now stuffed and on display. If you're driving through Baker on US12, this is something to see.
