Montana's Museum

Montana's Museum

The Montana Historical Society Museum, Montana's Museum, collects, preserves, and interprets fine art, historical, archaeological, and ethnological artifacts that pertain to Montana and its adjoining geographic region. Montana's Museum is where history and land come together in the story of the people who have called Montana home. It is located near the State Capitol in Helena.

Permanent exhibits at the museum include "Neither Empty nor Unknown: Montana at the Time of Lewis and Clark," "Montana Homeland" on everyday life throughout Montana history, and "Big Medicine," a preserved white bison (only one of five million bison are white bison) that was of significance to the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes.

We hope you enjoy our work.
