Fodor's Review

Covering the era from 1800 to 1900, the Museum of the Upper Missouri highlights the importance of Fort Benton and the role it played as a trading post, military fort, and the head of steamboat navigation. There are daily guided tours at the adjacent Old Fort Benton, considered the birthplace of Montana; its 1846 blockhouse is the oldest standing structure in the state. Highlights of the museum include tours of the restored frontier-era fort. The $10 fee also gives you access to the nearby Museum of the Northern Great Plains and the Missouri Breaks National Monument Interpretive Center.
