Fodor's Review

Montana's official agriculture museum, the Museum of the Northern Great Plains tells the story of three generations of farmers from 1908 until 1980. The 30,000 square feet of exhibition space hold a village of businesses from the homestead era and a library. On display are the Hornaday-Smithsonian Bison, specimens taken from the Montana plains when it seemed likely that the species faced extinction. In 1886 the six buffalo were stuffed, then exhibited in the Smithsonian

for more than 70 years before being returned to their native state.
