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.

We came in to get a map of Montana since it was marked as a visitors center, and we stayed for almost three hours admiring the wonderful work and efforts of the people who put together this fabulous gem! We highly recommend you walk through all of the buildings containing restored buggies, farm equipment, cars, household goods and the displays... More

Very interesting. Interesting info on Indians cowboys, and military at the time. Great story about 2 men donating the same gun on the same day and not knowing each other.

I believe this place has potential and is a work in progress. It was a really nice walk around the boardwalk to each exhibit but lacked adequate information. Inside the museum had an interesting display.

Almost passed this jewel by...so glad we did not. Absolutely beautifully well done and so well taken care of. We learned about the Far West Steamboat that carried the injured and the news of Clusters Last Stand to Saint Louis. And then the boat sank in St Louis. We live there and did not know this history. We had never... More

Diana , the manager was really nice (we had a donation for them) , and although the buildings outside weren't open , they had a new space for the visitor center , really well done! Saw some stuff we hadn't seen before , we were there in about 1980 and around 2006 before ..

Most of the museum is outdoors. Many old buildings that have been relocated to this site. Lots of history here. Definitely worth a stop.

This museum is close to I 90. Wonderful presentation inside. Very good signage. The young man at the desk was not very helpful. Passing time as it was his last day. We met an elderly gentleman that was a pleasure to visit with. Born and raised in Hardin so he can tell you anything you want to know.There are numerous... More
