This is a nice museum for a small town. It gives you a wonderful look at the areas history. It has some great old photos of the people and events. You can spend a lot of time there but in the off season the outer building are close but you can still walk around. It is worth a visit.

Guided to this by the folk at the Lariat Motel: excellent collection of all sorts of things both inside and out; cheap to get in and you could easily spend several hours: as a special bonus they have a ton of Will James stuff (see Ian Tyson song of that name)

A very historical and authentic visit into the late 1800's. Uniforms of the military and the Indian apparel is beautiful. Everyone should stop and see for a donation of 5.00.

A total surprise! For $5 (senior rate) we thought we would spend an hour to check this out. We could have easily spent 4 hours! The hotel we stayed at (The Lariat) suggested we go. Well worth the stop. Very clean and well maintained.35 Acres of 24 historic structures and exhibits. It was like walking through a town in the... More

Stumbled on this while driving to the Little Big Horn Battlefield. We found it incredible. The main building has stunning artifacts from the area and a huge collection of photos. There are 30 or so buildings on the grounds that have been restored and are filled with displays as well. Wear your walking shoes and plan to spend a couple... More

I stopped here after visiting the nearby Custer Battlefield site and another museum. I was worn out but still managed to spend another 2 hours here taking in all the exhibits and buildings. There is a lot of information on Fort Custer and around 20-25 additional buildings outside the main building to explore. All very interesting. There were three small... More

I have taken many 4-H groups thru this museum and they all have truly enjoyed what there is to see here. They have a great area where you can bring your own lunch and enjoy the area. The gift shop is also somewhere I like to stop and shop when looking for some items that are made local and great... More

The Big Horn County Historical Museum is located conveniently just off I-90 in Hardin outside of Billings. They have a nice collection of indoor exhibits and outdoor exhibits. The main indoor gallery has artifacts about area history including the work of the early church missionaries and the Battle of Little Bighorn. When I visited they also have an exhibit by... More

Came across this little gem by chance. A great museum presenting different eras and local history. This is a must see. Just a few minutes off the hiway.
