Montana Historical Society Museum
Montana Historical Society Museum Review
Highlights here include the MacKay Gallery, which displays one of the most important collections of Western artist Charlie Russell's work, and the Haynes Gallery, where early black-and-white photos of Yellowstone National Park taken by F. Jay Haynes are on display. The expansive Montana Homeland exhibit, which contains nearly 2,000 historical artifacts, documents, and photographs, takes a thorough look at Montana from the time of the first settlers to the present. The venue also hosts special events and family days in summer, including programs on folk music, Native American culture, and cowboys. Call ahead for information on upcoming events.
Out in front of the Historical Society Museum, catch the Last Chance Train Tour for an hour-long tour through historic neighborhoods of miners' mansions on the west side to the site where four miners made their first gold discovery on the gulch. Train tours cost $7.50 and take place Monday–Saturday at 11, 1, 3, and 5:30 in July and August, at 11, 1, and 3 Memorial Day weekend–June 30, and at 11 and 3 September 1–15. 406/442–1023 or 888/423–1023.
