I LOVE this Museum. There are acres & acres of bilding & old machinery to explore, while inside you get a well rounded view of life in Montana. Fantastic place bring a lunch, stop, take a deep breath & breathe in Montana.

A very pleasant place with mostly mining and logging items. They have a really nice bird display. Great for kids as they have story telling times.

My wife and I are from Texas - visited here on 7/23/16. As with other reviewers what a glance back into local history. Born in the 40s I still found items I didn't know what they were - without a description, would have missed out....More
