Reviewed November 27, 2012

Small museum but they have some quality pieces. You have to get a key and walk a bit if you want to see the annex.

“Nice Variety in exhibits”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Great revolving exhibits and special events. We like the event where Montana artists are featured and their work is for sale.

“Not bad.”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

The museum is not too big, so your visit shouldn't take too long. I enjoyed the Will James section with his cowboy scene paintings. Most of the museum was modern art, where people paint some wierd color combinations and call it art.

“You may be surprised by what you find”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

In an area where most museums have an amateur feel and acknowledge only a pioneer or cowboy-and-Indian past, this museum is standout. Emphasizing art of the region from the here and now, the exhibits are thoughtful and professional.
