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.

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
