C.M. Russell is a chronicler of the late 19th century west. His insights and art are revealing and poignant. One gets a real feel for the Indian life that disappeared. The museum and his studio are well worth a visit.

Fantastic museum for western and Indian art lovers. Don't miss this if you're in Great Falls. CM Russell's home is located here and is being renovated for touring. There is a reproduction of his studio in a log cabin that is also coming soon.

Great opportunity to see our very own cowboy artist. Other exhibits highlight western culture well..

Loved everything about the Museum. Wish the poems and letters on the walls had been put into typescript, to read better. Did not know Russell was from St. Louis originally. Very good selection of work, and friendly atmosphere to roam about.

House and studio closed for rennovation. Highly disappointed. This should be noted on the museum's website. They may reopen next year.

The artwork and sculpture portrayed life on the plains in the late 29th century. The bison exhibit was very informative. The Browning collection was a bonus.

There are examples of Charlie Russell's works from when he was a very young man and just starting out to his later years. There are very small paintings and very large ones. There are small items he crafted out of whatever materials were at hand....More
