We went through this little Museum while waiting for the tour train to return and had a lot of beautiful things about the past of Helena and very interesting things would visit here again if out that way everybody was nice and polite
montana history,,,things you never knew before,,excellent displays set in their own time frames,,have been there 5-6 times and since they rotate the pieces now and again,,it is always new,,,or even if they haven't,,you always see something you have missed before,,
What this museum lacks for in size is offset by its well-planned and informative exhibits. The main exhibit offers a chronologically smooth recounting of human activities in Montana. The exhibit of Charles M. Russell's work is excellent... I've seen other exhibits of his work and this is the best. The exhibit of Stan Lynde's work is also impressive. Be sure... 更多
I thought this was really well done compared to some of the others I have been to. It's not a big space but it's set up Chronologically from the ice age through statehood it steps through what it was like to live in Montana during that time, how people lived, ups and downs and had some really good artifacts and... 更多
This museum is fabulous. It flows nicely and has a good First Nation people room with the History of the Indian tribes, Lewis and Clarke exhibit which is very thorough, a dedicated room to art. Take the train tour - it's fun and you get to see all the stately mansion. The State Capitol is next door. Well worth a... 更多
This is a fairly small museum, but just the right size to spend a couple of hours looking around and reading about Montana history. I really enjoyed the Charles M. Russell exhibit of his art, and I learned a lot about him as a person. This is right across the street from the state capitol building, so you can see... 更多
A must stop in Helena. Don't forget to take a tour of the capitol. The museum is well done. Great for kids and adults. Several sections for hands on activities for the kids. Beautiful display of C.M. Russell paintings. The gift shop has a wonderful selection of books.
I spent about an hour and 30 minutes in the museum. It's $5 for adults. It was a nice break from driving and I was able to learn alittle bit about Montana. I'd say this is well worth the stop. And you can get lunch or dinner after. The state Capitol building is directly across the street.
Montana's story is told through a series of displays containing numerous artifacts. The displays are nicely organized and there are many detailed descriptions.
I enjoyed the exhibit on the beloved western cartoonist. Author of Rick O Shay, he's is one of Montana's favorites. Also some Charlie Russell paintings are presented. ( The best, however, are in Great Falls.) When I last visited in June 2016, there was a fascinating history of the Chinese in Montana ( early 1800s!) It was a guest exhibition... 更多
