We came across Fort Benton completely by accident, driving from Shelby to Lewistown. We only stopped for a leg stretch and a coffee in what seemed a quiet and tired looking place.

Made a special trip north just for this museum and greatly enjoyed it. A lot of information on pioneer life in early Montana. The museum includes a small pioneer village that features homes, a school and businesses as they would have looked in the past. A great place for children to learn about life on the prairie.
This museum is filled with farm machinery from all periods that are interesting, amazing and unique. It is one of the best I have seen in my travels around our country. It is not to be missed!
