We went to the museum late afternoon. Wrong thing to do. Its so large, so much to see, did not get to see it all. Don't know where they found some of the items there, but unbelievable. You go thru different times in history in each room. Its well worth the cost to get in. Will be going back on... 更多
It is so well done we could have spent a week here and not have seen or read everything. Handicap accessible. Easy to find by the legislative building. They should do more advertising about themselves. Well worth going.
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

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
This museum shows the development of the West in the Helena and Montana area. If you can, take the train ride around town. We found this worth doing a second time in 2 years. So intrigued with the beautiful mansions in town and of the history of the gold mines and ranches. Don't miss the gift shop where the large... 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.
