“great museum!”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

It's really cool to find a serious art museum in the middle of Montana. Definitely worth a visit if you are into art.

“Visit every time”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

I always like to visit the Paris Gibson Museum of Art. My number one reason to visit is the building. I love that they did not allow the beautiful high school building to fall into disrepair and have converted it into a public space for all to enjoy. There were 2 exhibits open the day we visited, but there was lots of student work downstairs. The real attraction to me is the grill work on the air vents, the functional radiators, and the slate (yes real slate) writing boards that are still in use. There is a memorial for the veterans who died in action in Iraq that is done in aluminium foil that is sort of a reminder that even tragic loss of life can be commemorated in a tasteful and beautiful commemorative display of art.

“Free museum and rightly so”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

I found the building more interesting than the art. The museum is in the original high school for Great Falls. A few interesting peaces but just average overall. The price is right.

“Love this place”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

I really love this place. They start with an amazing building, and go on from there. I am never disapointed. The exhibits are always thought provoking and emotions run wild with me when I look at the pieces. And it's FREE!
