Great account of local history.
Feb 2020
I was glad to find this open as I have not had much luck with museums lately. While the museum is small, as expected, it is huge on information. Detailed in the museum is the evolution of Cut Bank and Glacier County. On display are artifacts and details from the various aspects of the development. Of the numerous features, those such as Lewis and Clark and the conflicts with the Blackfeet were  particularly interesting. Also featured are some of the carvings of John Clark a member of the Blackfeet and a replica of a homestead house. I was fortunate enough to have a one on one tour with Dennis giving me an excellent education on so much history. An hour is a reasonable amount of time. The museum is located on the out skirts of town, if you follow the signs carefully you will find it.

Definitely worth the visit. Sara the anthropologist who works here is a wealth of information. She spent about a half an hour with us answering our many, many questions. She is definitely a gift to cut bank! Her enthusiasm is contagious.

The collection is extensive and well worth a visit and is run by a professional museum director who is more than happy to answer questions. As another reviewer pointed out, there is not only the collection inside, but the property has outside exhibits including a homesteader house and an oil derrick. And for those who have a problem finding the museum, it is just east of town and you turn left and go across the railroad tracks. Go down this road until it turns to the right and the museum is on your left and take the first left and then another left into the museum grounds. I mentioned to the Director that they need better signage.

Never Could locate!

Found the address, saw one sign for it but never found a sign on the road for this museum
Maybe it had not been replaced since the winter season has ended
Better directions and signs are needed

I stopped in when traveling from point A to Point B this summer, I really didn't expect much nut I was presently surprised with the experience. Bottom line if you're in the area, it's worth the stop.

A wonderful museum to check out!
Jul 2014 • Family
Cut Bank might be on the smaller side, but the Glacier County Historical Museum has a lot to offer visitors. It sits a little ways out of town, east of Cut Bank. They have a 1917 school house, a 1930s oil workers house, and a homesteaders house that is complete with a garden and working chicken coop. We found the staff to be very knowledgeable on the history of Glacier County. For the Lewis and Clark fans out there, they have a wonderful Lewis and Clark: Marias Expedition exhibit. For the train lovers, they have a very nice 1982 Burlington Northern Caboose. They have numerous other very nice exhibits on display as well. My family found this to be a very interesting place to visit on our stops to the Cut Bank area. I highly recommend stopping in and checking this out if you happen to be in Cut Bank.
