My friend took me here when I visited a few years ago. I enjoyed it so much I wanted to come back. Delightful museum that recognizes local artists. The gift shop is really nice as well. Don't miss this when you are in downtown Kalispell!

We really enjoyed the Hockaday Museum in Kalispell Montana. There was an exhibition on Western Art that was fabulous. It's a great little museum and a block away is the Museum at Central School which is very enjoyable.
