This museum is a great way to get to know the area as well as take a trip back in time. It is a large museum, that includes multiple buildings, including a one room school house, farm/ranch machinery from past decades, and so much history!

Free to everyone, you'll be greeted by friendly volunteers. Don't miss the one room school house and Mac's Museum in the lot behind the main building. Love the egg, seashell and insect collection.

You would not expect anything so magnificent in a backwater like Broadus, Montana. The exterior gives no clue as to the absolute gem that lies within. The volunteers knowledge is amazing. Twyla, Jean and her amazingly gifted 14 year old grandson Jaeger were an absolute...More

This museum is not at all what I was expecting, and that is a really good thing! This is not some fly by night roadside attraction. It is a legitimate museum with something for everybody. Everything in the museum is meticulously labeled and cataloged. It...More
