On the grounds of the Billings airport, directly across the parking lot from the terminal. If you have extra time while waiting for a plane, definitely make time for this museum. Lots of Native American artifacts. Well displayed. No charge!

It's frustrating to see the museum within spitting distance and go round and round the airport roads trying to find the signs to get to it. We finally made it. There is limited parking, but we were the only visitors at the time. It has...More

Wanted to revisit this facility and their new exhibits----one of special interest is the one on GHOST DANCERS. Also, they have a new and enlarged exhibit on rifles and pistols with considerable history on some very rare pieces. We were NOT disappointed.

This museum is right at the airport entrance. They have 2 floors of various interesting displays. Nice little museum to go to.

On a rainy day, we visited museums in Billings. This one was unique in featuring baseball, Calamity Jane, and wagon trail gear. The Native American examples were educational.
