Not a large museum but a few interesting exhibits. Worth the price of admission and a visit. The court room and jail are interesting.

The Billings County Court House Museum isn’t a top tier museum in the regional context, nor does it claim to be. However, it has interesting exhibits and very low admission fees. Considering the other attractions in/near Medora, this would be a secondary or rainy day activity.

Great place with interesting local history and relics. It was nice to learn about this area and I really liked seeing the old guns and the barb wire exhibit was cool as well.

We had just left the Harold Schafer Heritage Center (which was free) and had to pay $3 to tour this building............while interesting pieces are there - it's small. Granted $3 is not a large amount to pay but I would not go there again.

The admission is cheap, less than $5 I believe. Mostly the exhibits are of the history of the area. This used to be a courthouse/jail, so the jail cells and a courtroom have been restored and made available. If you are interested in old west rifles, then be sure to stop by for a visit. There are a lot of... More

This is a well maintained museum of the local history. If you are interested in that aspect of Medora. There isn't much in the way of Theodore Roosevelt or the Marquis de Mores. Was not very expensive, $2 I think, but not sure I would go again.

The gun collection may be the best part of the collections. Staff were most helpful. Those jail cells were a place to avoid!

Full disclosure: I love small, local museums...and I liked this museum. And it is FREE> I learned a lot about barbed wire...and never knew that barbed wire had a decided effect on the West. I also liked the original jail, and all the old documents. It is museums like this that teach us the real history of a place. So... More
