Beyond amazing. By far the best museum I have ever seen. It's really more of a vast collection done mostly by one man over decades. Rare and vintage cars, motorcycles, army... read more

Collection of stuff arranged in an interesting manner. Perhaps too much stuff in some areas. It was interesting but no where near the best museum ever....not even sure it's really meets the standards of a museum. Spread throughout are conservative political messages about several topics including native Americans and civil rights.

Beyond amazing. By far the best museum I have ever seen. It's really more of a vast collection done mostly by one man over decades. Rare and vintage cars, motorcycles, army vehicles , boats , farm equipment , guns, snow mobiles, a full size drug store soda fountain. Etc. etc. etc. I could go on and on. That's not to... More

If the items outside didn't grab your attention then I don't know what would. I am very "yep nice keep moving" type of guy. Varied enough to keep my attention. Bunch of motorcycles, military, and Polson items inside. Outback is a maze of items that some of us may of grew up with. Totally worth going to while you are... More

The front of the building has a very Roadside America look to it, and in fact is rated by Roadside America as "Major Fun". It calls itself a museum, but has a decidedly different take on the organizing and identification of exhibits. The inside is loosely guouped into categories, and while you're supposed to follow a specific line of travel,... More

My wife and I spent at least four hours and we didn't see it all. Gil's collections are amazing! If you can't find something that interests you, you're not looking hard enough. Found out about this place from a brochure at the local campsite. I would recommend this to anyone interested in Americana.

There is entirely too much to see in a single visit. The displays are very complete, and there are both indoor and outdoor exhibits. You can learn a lot of history, both Montana oriented, and general American scope. Certainly brought back a lot of memories.

Each time I visit this Museum, I see more and take new pride in American ingenuity. I appreciate the patriotic theme.

I can't explain this place. It is an amazing collection of Americana, memorabilia, military history, weaponry,old motorcycles and vehicles, tractors, political posters, exhibits of domestic life, a full soda shop, airplanes, it just goes on and on. We thought it would be one of those quick stops and 2 hours later we were still exploring. There is something for everyone.... More

Polson is really making a major mistake by not assisting the owners to turn this into a 'World Class' museum. Go to Cody Wyoming and see the Wild Bill Cody Muesum of the West and you will know exactly what I mean. Theses owners (Gil & Joanne Mangels) already have enough 'material' for multiple muesums but they need a city... More

This is a unique museum (a little haphazard in some areas) with so much to see that you probably won't be able to take it all in. Cars, motorcycles, farm equipment, history, military vehicles, clothing, toys, etc., etc. Several rooms, buildings and outdoor displays. Great for all ages.
